The Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions on Monday summoned the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, Chairman Justice Danladi Umar.
The invitation letter was contained in a letter signed by the Clerk of the Committee, Freedom Odolo.
Senate President, Bukola Saraki is facing 13 counts of false assets declaration and fraud before the CCT.
The invitation came hours after the judge ruled that Mr. Saraki’s trial would sit daily between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., with a one hour break in between.
In the letter, the Senate demanded Umar to appear before it unfailingly by 2pm on Thursday.
This is coming a day after Umar ruled that Saraki’s trial will be on a daily basis.
The committee said, “Your letter with reference number CCT/HQ/ 126/S/ 111/ 515 dated 1st April, 2016 in which you requested for more time to enable you attend the hearing was received.
“After due consideration of your request, the Committee rescheduled the hearing to give you at least two weeks from the 4th of April when you should have appeared.
Accordingly, you are now required to appear unfailingly as follows: Thursday, 21st April, 2016, Meeting Room 120 New Senate Building, National Assembly Complex. Time: 2pm
“Please, remember to come personally along with 12 copies of any written submission you may wish to present.”
The invitation letter was delivered to Danladi shortly after his ruling on Monday.
