Senate President Bukola Saraki, whose trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT continues, arrived for court procession on Thursday, 28 April, 2016 without the usual train of Senators.
It was observed that he was not accompanied by any senator as he arrived the tribunal at 10:15am.
However, two senators later joined him after 45 minutes.
This is the first time the Senate President would arrive “solo” at the tribunal.
In October 2015, at least 81 senators accompanied Saraki to the CCT. But the number kept plummeting afterwards.
On Wednesday, only two senators accompanied him to the tribunal.
Meanwhile, Danladi Umar, chairman of the CCT, will rule on Saraki’s application asking him to withdraw from the trial.
Saraki is facing multiple counts of false declaration of assets.
