CCT-Saraki

Sixty-five lawyers represented Senate President Bukola Saraki in the false asset declaration and corruption charges brought against him by the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
The tribunal, which yesterday adjourned the trial to March I8, took the decision after Mr. Saraki’s new lawyer, Kanu CCT-SarakiAgabi, asked the tribunal to rule first on the senate president’s objection to the powers of the tribunal to try him.
The Senate president’s bid to thwart the trial failed after the Supreme Court said the tribunal has powers and was constituted to hear the case against Mr. Saraki.
On resumption of the case at the tribunal, Mr. Agabi, a former Attorney General of the Federation, who led 64 other lawyers to represent Mr. Saraki, presented a fresh motion, seeking a ruling from the chairman of the tribunal, Umar Danladi, on the initial application that the tribunal lacked the jurisdiction to try Mr. Saraki.
Mr. Agabi said a copy of the application had been presented before the Ministry of Justice and was also addressed to the prosecuting counsel, Rotimi Jacobs.
He argued that the tribunal chair had an obligation to rule on the new application.
Citing section 396, of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015, Mr. Jacobs objected to the application, saying the matter was not ripe for hearing, and that the application was a new development which he knew nothing about.
“The Ministry of Justice is not the prosecutor in this court,” Mr. Jacobs said.
He added that the new move by Mr. Saraki’s team was new to him.
Responding, Mr. Agabi pleaded with Mr. Jacobs and apologised for not personally handing the application to him.
Another tribunal judge, William Atedze, urged Mr. Jacobs to indulge Mr. Agabi since he had apologised.

    THE CCT JUDGES DO NOT SEEM TO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING.

    THE SUPREME COURT WHERE MR SARAKI EARLIER LODGED THE APPEAL, DISMISSED SARAKI’S REASONS FOR SQUASHING HIS CASE AND RULED THAT MR SARAKI SHOULD APPEAR BEFORE THE CCT. THEN WHAT IS ALL THIS NONSENSE ABOUT SARAKI SAYING AGAIN THAT HE DOES NOT RECOGNIZE CCT????? . THIS MISCHIEVOUS AND SARAKI TURNED NOW INTO A SATAN, IS ALSO INTIMIDATING THE COURT AS AN ESTABLISHMENT AND THE CCT PANEL, SHOWING GREAT DISRESPECT FOR THE LAW OF THE LAND AND SHOULD NOT BE TOLERATED UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE BY BUHARI AND THE CHIEF JUSTICE OF NIGERIA. IT IS SIMPLY A GANGSTER MENTALITY, TYPICAL OF OF THIS GANGSTER SARAKI. SARAKI IS A BIG-TIME THIEF AND HAS NO CASE, IT CLEARLY SHOWS CORRUPTION IS FIGHTING BACK.

    SARAKI’S RIGHTFUL PLACE IS KUJE PRISON FOR A MINIMUM OF 10 YEARS AND ALL HIS ILLEGALLY OWNED PROPERTIES CONFISCATED BY THE STATE AND ALL BANK ACCOUNTS FROZEN. IT IS A TEST CASE FOR PRESIDENT BUHARI.
