The embattled President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki has his trial adjourned to March 24 after his lawyer Chief Kanu Agabi (SAN)  proved that the Code of Conduct Tribunal lacks jurisdiction to try him.

Saraki is standing trial over allegation of false declaration of assets while serving as the governor of Kwara State.

The Senate president who appeared at the CCT on Friday with large entourage of senators and about 80 lawyers said his prosecution was politically motivated and that the allegations against him should be thrown out.

Agabi said the tribunal lacked jurisdiction to entertain the charges against his client, on among other grounds, that the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice lacked the powers to file charges before the tribunal.

After listening to Mr. Rotimi Jacobs, the government lawyer, the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal Justice Danladi Umar fixed March 24 for ruling on a motion by the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, seeking to dismiss the false assets declaration charges leveled against him.
