Code of Conduct Tribunal adjourns to deliberate on Bukola Saraki’s failure to appear before the Tribunal

It’s the second day of sitting at the trial of Senate President, Bukola Saraki, at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

Like the first time around, Saraki refused to attend the trial proceedings.

It appears that the execution of the bench warrant issued against the Senate President on Friday was delayed after his lead lawyer, Joseph Daodu, assured the court that his client will be in court on Monday.

Resigned to the fact that Saraki wouldn’t be showing up, the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, Umar Danladi adjourned proceedings for one hour.

The one hour will give the tribunal ample time to decide on the ramifications of Saraki’s absence and the next line of action.
