CCT Halts Planned Arraignment Of Senator Nwaoboshi
The Code of Coonduct Tribunal (CCT) on Tuesday halted the arraignment of Senator Peter Nwaoboshi for non compliance of its rules.
This was made known in statement issued by Ibraheem Alhassan, press and public relations officer of the CCT.
The statement reads, “The CCT returned the federal ministry of Justice application to commence trial against a Senator named Peter Nwaoboshi for substantial non compliance with the Tribunal’s Practice Direction 2017.
“We were compelled to issue this release because over the weekend some national dailies in their content reported that: Senator Nwaoboshi was before CCT ready to be arraigned, this was before the registry of CCT studying the application before taken a decision. But suddenly it got leaked out by an imposter, purportedly to be believed it was from tribunal.
“I am however directed by the Hon. Chairman of Code of Conduct Tribunal to return the application filed due to that due to the following.
“Noncompliance with paragraph 3 (2) (i) (iii) and (iv) of the Code of Conduct Tribunal Practice Direction 2017 in that: No name of witness(s) is listed on the application; the CCB staff so stated without given a name and address is vague.
“Since accounts are involved, a bank official ought to be listed as witness with attached statement of witness(s).
”We crave the indulgence of media operatives not to use any matter before Tribunal from anybody outside it, in order avoid this kind of mishaps of our procedures.”
