The Senate president’s trial at the Code of Conduct

Sources reveal that the tribunal hopes this week to

The cross-examination began in April, a span that

dissatisfaction about.

Mr. Wetkas, an EFCC official, for weeks, over
evidences he tendered against the top lawmaker
before the court.
Below are updates of how Nigeria’s no 3 man fared
at thge CCT today.
At about 13.14pm:
Kanu Agabi the lead counsel to Saraki requested an
adjournment to allow him see his doctor. The
tribunal weighed an adjournment for another week,
maybe next Wednesday.
Mr Jacobs strongly objects this, saying the court
should finish with Mr Wetkas this week as planned.
“Take it easy and understand that you
can’t overrule the court, Rotimi” said
William Atedze, co-chair of the tribunal. “If any

continue it.”
The defence, prosecution and the tribunal chairmen

Cross-examination of Mr. Wetkas continues over the
discrepancies in the Maitama property Saraki was
alleged to have purchased in 1993 but which he
allegedly failed to declare in 2003 when he
became governor in Kwara.
A chairman of the tribunal, Mr. Umar, is angry over
“rude” comments by senators and other supporters of
Saraki. The individuals, seated in the court gallery,
had repeatedly asked Rotimi Jacobs, prosecution
counsel, to “sit down”.
This infuriated Mr. Umar, who said the senate
president’s supporters’ conduct was becoming
unbearable in his court, warning that they should
“keep quiet”.
“If I hear anybody ask the counsel to sit
down, I will deal with the person and
nobody can question me about it. In fact,
I will hold the person in contempt and
sentence the person to hard labour and
nobody will question me,” Mr Umar warned.

Mascherano will not force Barca exit

Barcelona have told Javier Mascherano they do not want
him to leave amid reports in Spain and Italy that
Juventus are attempting to lure him to Turin.
The defensive midfielder, who is 32 on Wednesday, is
under contract until June 2018 and has a €100 million
release clause.
Mascherino said to Ole newspaper: "Barca have let me
know that they have no intention of me leaving. They
are very happy with me.
"When the club, and even more so this club, tells you
this, it is very difficult to leave. I am not going to
force anything. Nobody involved deserves that.
"There is always the possibility of leaving, but also of
staying. I have a contract with Barcelona. They have
treated me very well, I have no complaints," said the

Mascherano started 44 games for Barca last season,

OPINION:-----Why presidency is lying about Buhari’s ill health

Why presidency is lying about
Buhari’s ill health

Editor’s note: President Muhammadu
Buhari has embarked on ten-day medical
leave on June 6, Monday to treat ear
O’Femi Kolawole in this piece for
TheCable explains why the presidency lies
about Buhari’s ill health.
President Buhari on his way to London
Blatant lies of the president’s team
With the news to the nation by presidential
spokesman, Mr. Femi Adesina, that President
Muhammadu Buhari will begin a 10-day vacation to
the United Kingdom on Monday and during the
period, seek medical attention for a “persistent ear
infection”, the lid has clearly now been blown on
the contempt and disrespect some members of the
president’s team have for Nigerians in the blatant
lies they tell.
This is because just 24 hours earlier, it was the
same Adesina who told the media that the president
is “as fit as a fiddle ” as well as “hale and
“Didn’t you see pictures of him receiving Anglican
bishops yesterday? Did he look sick? The president
is as fit as a fiddle. Anyone who says he is sick is
telling lies. That is a figment of the person’s
imagination. Just yesterday he received the Primate
of the Anglican Communion and Archbishops at the
Presidential villa. He also received former President
Olusegun Obasanjo. He is hale and hearty. The
imagination of whoever says that is on overdrive,”
Adesina had told TheCable last Saturday.
Even The Nation, a newspaper sympathetic to the
APC, the President’s political party, also published a
news story on Sunday, “Presidency: Buhari is not sick”
in which the President’s spokesman further dismissed
and described as false media reports that the
President was ill and treating an infection in his
left ear known as Meniere Disease. Adesina told the
newspaper that Buhari was fine and discharging his
duties as President of Nigeria.
But it’s obvious the man lied!
Now, what is wrong with being sick?
Anyone can fall sick anytime just as President Buhari
himself rightly said. So, why on earth would
Adesina lie about the president’s health? In whose
interest is it? Why make such statement when the
winds of time would expose such hypocrisy? Why
the deceit? Just why?
Mr. Adesina said anyone who says the president is
sick is telling lies. With President Buhari off to the
UK, it’s now apparent who the liar is! Verily, verily
I saith unto you, Nigerians, lying is corruption!
For a leading editor and columnist whose writings
many Nigerians loved to read while he was at The
Sun, it is surprising and shocking to see what being
at the corridors of power is turning an otherwise
distinguished journalist to. If he doesn’t already
know, Mr. Adesina must realise his fans are seriously
