The Court of Appeal has dismissed an application filed by Senate President Bukola Saraki challenging a previous decision of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT.
Mr. Saraki is facing trial at the tribunal for alleged false declaration of asset.
He had approached the appeal court after the CCT dismissed his application in April, challenging the jurisdiction of the tribunal to try him.
A five man panel of justices led by Abdul Aboki on Friday affirmed the decision of the tribunal and dismissed Mr. Saraki’s application for lacking in merit.
Mr. Saraki’s applications on the matter has repeatedly been dismissed by the higher courts.
A similar petition was previously dismissed by the court, after which same was also struck out by the apex court in February 5 when the Supreme Court decided that Mr. Saraki should return to face his trial at the tribunal.
He is facing a 16-count charge brought against him by the Code of Conduct Bureau.
