Senate President dares CCT chairman

Saraki, on Tuesday, April 19, 2016, first of all held the plenary session of the Senate before leaving for his trial.

 

The CCT chairman, Justice Danladi Umar, had earlier ruled that proceedings at the trial will start by 10am and end 6pm daily.

Saraki’s request for the tribunal to suspend sittings on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, which are days of plenary for the Senate was turned down by Justice Danladi.

The Daily Sun reports that the Senate President on Tuesday, April 19, 2016, first of all held the plenary session of the Senate before leaving for his trial.

When he arrived the CCT by 11:55am, the tribunal chairman reportedly did not commence hearing for over one hour.

Reports say Justice Danladi did not give any reason for the delay in commencement of the tribunal’s proceedings for the day.

You will recall that Senator Saraki said his trial will not disturb the smooth running of the Senate.

Justice Danladi also criticised Senators who accompanied Bukola Saraki, saying the Senate was not on trial.
