Saraki files appeal at the Supreme Court

Senate President Bukola Saraki has filed an appeal at the Supreme Court against the judgment of the Court of Appeal in Abuja which affirmed the jurisdiction of Code of Conduct Tribunal ( CCT ) to try him on 13 count charge of false assets declaration while he was governor of Kwara state.
The Court of Appeal on October 30th in its ruling stated that the CCT had the constitutional authority to try the senate president.
In the appeal filed by his lead counsel, Joseph Daudu (SAN) before the Supreme Court today, Saraki raised seven grounds of appeal in his notice in which he is asking the Supreme Court to set aside the judgment of the Court of Appeal, the entire proceedings of the CCT and the charges preferred against him before the tribunal.
The appeal and application for stay of proceedings filed by Saraki may not affect proceedings before the CCT tomorrow as the Supreme Court will most likely not sit before then to consider any of the documents he has just filed.
