Court strikes out suit challenging Saraki’s trial at CCT
A Federal High Court in Abuja has struck out a suit challenging the propriety of the trial of Senate President, Bukola Saraki before the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).
Justice Gabriel Kolawole struck out the suit following an oral application by Mrs. H. M. Eken, lawyer to the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami (SAN).
At the commencement of proceedings, Mrs. Eken noted that the applicant – Timipa Jenkins Okponipere – was absent in court. She argued that the applicant’s absence was an indication the lack of diligence on his part to prosecute the case.
