The Senate President’s trial for alleged false declaration of his assets when he was Governor of Kwara State has begun at the Code of Conduct Tribunal in Abuja.

 

The Deputy Director in the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation, M.S.Hassan, filed the charges against Dr. Bukola Saraki on September 11.

The Senate President is facing 13 counts at the CCT.

 

Lawyer to the Senate President, Sen. Bukola Saraki, Mr Joseph Daudu, SAN is challenging the hearing of the suit at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, saying the prosecutor, Mr Mohammed Hassan lacks the locus standi to institute d action in d absence of an Attorney-General of the Federation.

 

Mr Hassan, a counsel in the office of the A.G.F. disagrees, saying any officer in the office of the AGF can institute a criminal proceeding in the absence of an AGF.
