CCT to hold Saraki, Ngwuta’s trial daily

by Dolapo Adelana

The Code of Conduct Tribunal has said the trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki, a Supreme Court Justice, Sylvester Ngwuta, and others currently before it will continue on a day-by-day basis, Premium Times reports.

Saraki is facing an 18-count charge for false declaration of asset while Ngwuta was slammed with an eight-count charge on the same offence.

The CCT stated this in its practice direction manual for the year 2017, which said, “Hearing of cases shall be from day-to-day bases as the diary of the tribunal may permit for the purpose of fair and speedy trial”.
