The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja has adjourned the hearing of the appeals instituted by Senate President, Bukola Saraki challenging the jurisdiction of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) to try him on charges, including false and anticipatory asset declaration till Thursday 2 June following the inability of the court to form a quorum.

Justice Moo Adumie who led a three-man panel said the case cannot be heard with three panel members in attendance as the matter required full panel of five members.


He, therefore, adjourned the case and asked for the understanding of the parties.

Saraki had approached the appellate court challenging a March 24, 2016 ruling of the Danladi Umar-led Code of Conduct Tribunal dismissing his application challenging the jurisdiction of the tribunal to hear the charges against him.
