The Federal Government is set to transmit to the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja, over 3, 000 pages of the records of the trial of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
The transmission of records of the trial to the court of appeal is a legal requirement to validate its notice of appeal filed against the CCT's judgment, which recently discharged and acquitted Senator Saraki of all the 18 charges of false assets declaration.
The records transmission will set the stage for exchange of briefs between the parties before a date for hearing of the appeal can be fixed by the court.
