Saraki’s CCT trial adjourned indefinitely

After weeks of braggadoccio and a promise to try the case in record time including conducting daily proceeding, Justice Danladi Umar, Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal on Wednesday adjourned the trial of Senate President, Bukola Saraki, indefinitely.

The adjourmment we heard followed the failure of Micheal Wetkas, the lead prosecution witness to show up in court. Weakas who has been stuttering since the cross examination began was expected to take the witness box again today but he was said be absent due to official reasons.

The tribunal Chairman, Danladi Umar, said the adjournment was to give the court time to hear other cases.

The prosecution and defence teams said the break would allow them prepare their cases better.

Since the trail began, the Senate President has insisted that he was innocent and that the case was orchestrated by those who were not happy at his emergence as the Leader of Nigeria’s Legislative Arm. He called it political, and noted that he would eventually be cleared of all charges.
