Senate To Investigate CCT Chairman

 

The Senate is to begin investigating allegations of corruption levelled against the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, Mr Danladi Umar.

 

The Senate took the decision to commence the investigation after a federal lawmaker, Senator  Obinna Ogba, submitted a petition on behalf of a group, the Anti-Corruption Network which made the allegations against the CCT Chairman.

 

Senate President, Bukola Saraki, referred the petition to the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions for legislative work.

 

The same group had submitted a petition to the House of Representatives against the CCT Chairman over similar allegations.

 

The Chairman of CCT, Mr Danladi, is currently hearing a case of false asset declaration against the Senate President, Dr.‎ Bukola Saraki.
