The country’s apex court, the Supreme Court will on Thursday, November 12, 2015 hear the application by Senate President, Bukola Saraki seeking to stop his trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) over charges of false assets declaration.

According to Punch, It would be recalled that Saraki had on Friday, October 30, 2015 failed to get a favourable ruling in a similar application at the Appeal Court, prompting him to approach the Supreme Court.

Saraki is challenging the competence of the charges instituted against him and the jurisdiction of the CCT to try him.
