FG to send CCT record of Saraki’s Trial to Court of Appeal

Federal Government is set to transmit to the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja, over 3,000 pages of the records of the 21 months trial of the Senate President, BUKOLA SARAKI, at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

The transmission of records of the trial to the Court of Appeal is a legal requirement for the Federal Government to validate its notice of appeal filed against the CCT’s judgment, which recently discharged and acquitted SARAKI of all the 18 charges of false assets declaration.

According to legal experts, the Court of Appeal only assigns an appeal number to a case after receiving the “records of appeal” transmitted to it from the lower court.

Legal practitioner and Human Right Activist, IKECHUKWU IKEJI, commend the move by the federal government to test the validity of the Code of Conduct Tribunal ruling in court.
