Danladi Umar, chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), on Tuesday kept Senate President Saraki waiting for an hour and 40 minutes.
Saraki, who had briefly presided over the senate, arrived at the CCT at 12pm.
Umar had announced on Monday that the trial of the senate president for false declaration of assets would continue at 12pm on Tuesday. But he arrived at 1:40pm, keeping Saraki, senators, lawyers, journalists and some guests waiting.
The CCT chairman did not offer an explanation or an apology for his lateness. He just sauntered straight into the courtroom and asked registrar to call the case.
Although this is not the first time the CCT chairman has come late to court since the trial started, it is the first time he is arriving the courtroom later than 30 minutes after the scheduled time.
