Senate suspends controversial amendment of Code of Conduct Bureau/Tribunal Act


The Senate has suspended further deliberation on the amendment of the Code of Conduct Bureau/Tribunal Act which passed second reading last week as well as that of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act.

The upper legislative chamber also resolved to stand by its President Bukola Saraki who is standing trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal on a thirteen count charge bordering on false asset declaration until his proven guilty.


These resolutions were disclosed by Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu who presided over plenary on Wednesday after a closed door session which lasted over two hours.

Ekweremadu also stated that the senate resolved to suspend the discussion on the report of the Ethics Committee report on Senator Kabiru Marafa which was set to pass disciplinary action against the lawmaker following what was termed as his unguarded comments against the Senate and it's leadership.

In a bid to further unite all Senators, a reconciliatory committee was inaugurated, made up of two senators from each of the six geo-political zones of the country to look into all the matters that have divided the 8th senate since inception.
