CCT rules that Saraki' trial must continue, adjourns to Nov. 19th for trial

The Code of Conduct Tribunal has ruled that Senate President Bukola Saraki's trial must continue. Saraki is standing trial on a 13 count charge of false asset declaration while he was governor of Kwara state. The Code of Conduct Tribunal in its ruling, said the trial must continue despite Saraki's appeal at the Supreme court. Lawyers to the senate president walked out of the court and reportedly described the CCT's ruling as judicial rascality. It was adjourned to November 19th for trial.
