The Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions yesterday summoned the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, Chairman Justice Danladi Umar.
The summon is believed to be linked with the Senate President, Bukola Saraki’s ongoing trial over false declaration of assets.
The invitation was contained in a letter signed by the Clerk of the Committee, Freedom Odolo.
In the letter, the Senate demanded Umar to appear before the Senate house unfailingly by 2pm on Thursday.
This is coming a day after Umar ruled that Saraki’s trial will be on a daily basis.
The committee said, “Your letter with reference number CCT/HQ/ 126/S/ 111/ 515 dated 1st April, 2016 in which you requested for more time to enable you attend the hearing was received.
“After due consideration of your request, the Committee rescheduled the hearing to give you at least two weeks from the 4th of April when you should have appeared.
“Accordingly, you are now required to appear unfailingly as follows: Thursday, 21st April, 2016, Meeting Room 120 New Senate Building, National Assembly Complex. Time: 2pm
“Please, remember to come personally along with 12 copies of any written submission you may wish to present.”
The invitation letter was delivered to the CCT chairman shortly after his ruling yesterday.
