The trial of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, is set to die a natural death, following a ruling by the Tribunal Chairman, Danladi Umar.
The Tribunal’s Chairman on Wednesday, June 1, in his ruling, adjourned the case indefinitely.
Explaining reasons for the ruling, Umar said the adjournment was to give the court time to hear other cases.
Post-Nigeria, learnt that prosecution witness, Michael Wetkas, who was to be cross-examined by the defence counsel, failed to show up at the court.
It was also reported that he was absent, because he was attending another trial at the Federal High Court, Abuja.
However, the prosecution and defence teams agreed to the adjournment, noting that the break would allow them prepare their cases better.
The development is coming a day after an expected ruling on the Senate President’s case at the Court of Appeal, Abuja, was stalled after the court failed to form a quorum.
The judgment was shifted to Thursday, June 2, following the inability of the court to form a quorum.
The judgment of the CCT might be connected to a report which reveals that the Senate president and a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, reached a truce at a presidential dinner, hosted by President Muhammadu Buhari, in honour of members of the National Assembly.
