According to reports, the Code of Conduct Tribunal has dismissed the motion filed by the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, asking the Chairman of the Tribunal, Justice Danladi Umar, to disqualify himself from his trial.
The motion was dismissed on Wednesday.
In dismissing the motion, Umar said he cannot disqualify himself from the trial on the ground that without him, there can be no tribunal.
According to him, it is only the President and a two-third of the National Assembly that can remove him from office.
