Senate President Bukola Saraki has told the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) that he intends to file a no-case submission.
He is facing charges of false asset declaration.
This implies that he is not opening a defence, but asking the tribunal to discharge him because there is no case against him.
Counsel to Saraki, Paul Erokoro asked the tribunal for leave to file the application of no-case submission instead of opening a defence.
Prosecution counsel, Rotimi Jacobs had earlier told the tribunal that he had closed his case.
He also called his fourth and last witness – Bayo Daudu, Saraki’s account officer at Guaranty Trust Bank.
Danladi Umar, chairman of the tribunal, adjourned the case till June the 8th for adoption of written addresses.
