For the First Time Ever CCT Rules In Favour of Saraki


The chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Danladi Umar, today ruled in favour of Senate President Bukola Saraki for the first time since his trial began.

THE CABLE reports that Danladi gave the ruling when Rotimi Jacobs, counsel to the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB); the prosecution, complained that the cross examination of Michael Wetkas, a principal witness, had taken much time because the defence team kept changing the lawyers examining the witness.

In his ruling, Umar held that Saraki had the right to engage as many lawyers as he wanted, and to choose which one of them would speak for him in court.
