The Head, Press and Public Relations of the CCT, Ibraheem Al-hassan, confirmed this to reporters

We have issued and served the hearing notice today,” Alhassan was quoted to have said.

Saraki had petitioned an Abuja Court of Appeal to order the termination of his trial by the CCT after the tribunal had charged him for allegedly declaring the wrong worth of his asset when he was governor of Kwara state.

The senate president, having lost at the appeal court proceeded to the Supreme Court to get an injunction to upturn the position of the lower court.

The Supreme Court however, on Friday, February 5 dismissed Saraki’s bid giving the CCT the confirmation to proceed on the trial.
