The President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has said that his trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal will not interrupt Senate proceedings, a statement said in Abuja on Monday. The statement was issued by Saraki’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Yusuph Olaniyonu. It said the President of the Senate spoke following the announcement of the tribunal Chairman, Mr. Danladi Umar that proceedings in the trial would hold daily henceforth.
The statement said: “It would be recalled that at the preliminary stage of the trial, Senators had always accompanied the Senate President to the tribunal each time the case came up for hearing. “ But Saraki said now that the trial proper has commenced and the Senate is in session, he would not want the trial to affect legislative business.
