The trial of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, has been postponed to Monday, April 18, 2016.

Chairman of the tribunal, Danladi Umar, was forced to adjourn sitting at the resumption of the trial on Wednesday due to power failure.

There was a blackout on Wednesday while the proceedings were going on, which caused intense heat in the courtroom.
