According to Daily Post, Ahmed Mogaji , the Senate president’s counsel, has resigned from defending Senator Bukola Saraki at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT). He urged the tribunal to suspend further hearing on the matter pending the Supreme Court’s decision on the matter, but his argument was opposed by the prosecution, Rotimi Jacobs.
The counsel, in his reaction to the new development, resigned from his post as the defense counsel, leaving the former governor to ‘shop’ for a new legal consultant ahead of the next hearing.
The case has since been adjourned to November 18 and 19 for further hearing.
Earlier in the day, Saraki appeared at the CCT for his ongoing trial with several senators.
The former governor who pleaded ‘not guilty’ to the 13-count charge against him, was accompanied to the tribunal Thursday morning by several senators.
