The Supreme Court, on Thursday morning, halted the hearing on the 13-count criminal charge pending against ‎the Senate President, Dr. Olubukola Saraki, before the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT.

The apex court, in a ruling today, directed the Justice Danladi Umar-led tribunal to suspend the trial to enable it to hear and determine the substantive appeal that Saraki lodged before it.

This was even as the prosecuting counsel, Mr. Rotimi Jacobs, SAN, entered ‎an undertaking before the apex court that “no unusual step will be taken by the federal government”, in relation to the matter.

In their ruling, a five-man panel of Justices of the Supreme Court ‎led by Justices John Fabiyi, held: “It is imperative to state that all the parties, including the Code of Conduct Tribunal, should tarry a while to enable this court to determine the appeal before it.

“In effect, further proceeding at the CCT should be stayed pending the hearing of the appeal. Hearing date will be communicated to all the parties”, Justice Fabiyi ruled.

All the other members of the apex court panel also concurred with ‎the lead ruling.

    He Sarki should be left alone. He is a man of integrity having seen how is handling the affairs of the 8th assembly without problem.

    But in assembly committee chaimanship, he is considered not been loyal to his party by appointing pdp senators to various post that are more enviable to the country.

    Kindly allow him to continue with the 8th assembly.
