The trial had initially been set for March 10 but was shifted due to a letter request by Saraki’s lawyer, Chief Kanu Agabi (SAN).

The corruption trial of Senate President, Bukola Saraki before the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) will hold on March 11, 2016.

The trial had initially been set for March 10 but was shifted due to a letter request by Saraki’s lawyer, Chief Kanu Agabi (SAN).

The postponement was disclosed via a statement released by the spokesperson of the CCT, Ibraheem Alhassan on Tuesday, March 1.

Agabi’s letter read:

“I write as lead counsel to the above defendant to apply that the matter which is now scheduled to come up on the 10th day of March 2016, subject to the convenience of the Honourable Tribunal and learned counsel for the prosecution, be taken on the 11th day of March, 2016, due to my earlier and urgent commitments in other courts on the 10th.”
