BREAKING: Appeal Court Reserves Judgement On FG’s Appeal Against Saraki’s Acquittal By CCT
The Court of Appeal in Abuja on Tuesday reserved its judgment on the appeal filed by the Federal Government to challenge the acquittal of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, by the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
The Punch reports that the three-man panel of justices led by Tinuade Akomolafe-Wilson took the decision after parties to the case adopted their appellant’s and respondent’s briefs.
The date of the delivery of the judgment is to be later communicated to the parties.
According to report earlier, President Muhammadu Buhari’s government filed a notice of appeal against the acquittal of Saraki.
This was after the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) dismissed the case of false asset declaration against Nigeria’s Senate president Saraki on June 14.
In his reaction to the appeal filed, Saraki said he was unperturbed by the government’s position on his CCT trial judgement.
He also said he was confident that the ruling of the higher court will not be anything different from the judgement given by the CCT.
