Court orders CCT Chairman, Umar to appear before Senate for alleged misconduct
A Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday, 26th April, 2022 dismissed a suit by the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, Danladi Yakubu Umar seeking to stop the Senate from probing him on alleged misconduct.
The Court held that as a public officer administering law, he is answerable to the Senate on moral standards.
Justice Inyang Eden Ekwo, in a judgment in the suit, ordered the CCT boss to go and appear before the Senate and answer questions on a public petition brought against him by an aggrieved citizen.
The judge held that his case seeking to stop the probe by the Senate lacked merit.
