The #Code of Conduct Tribunal has granted the request of the prosecuting team of #Code of Conduct Bureau, #led by Nwaobi M. A. S. (Esq) to enable it reply on the motion on notice filed by the Counsel to the accused person.
The accused is #General Jeremiah Timbut Useni, a former Federal Capital Territory Minister, Abuja.
Chairman of Code told the Court that they have just received motion on notice in the Court from the #defence counsel requiring the #Tribunal to quash and strike out the charge and to dispense with appearance of its client.
However, the Defence Counsel, #Nathaniel Egbel (Esq), highlighted to the court that “on the face of the motion, we are seeking for quashing, that is, striking out of the charge and to dispense with the appearance of the accused person.”
Readers may wish to recall that General J.T. Useni was principally brought to the Tribunal on 5 count charges which border on failure to submit his written declaration of his assets and liabilities and those of his spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21 to CCB, as a public servant of Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Also, he was alleged to have allowed his personal interest to conflict with his official duties and responsibilities by allocating plots in the Federal Capital Territory to himself and Companies in which he had interest and to members of his immediate family.
#Conduct Tribunal, #Justice Danladi Yakubu Umar, alongside with Hon. Member of the Tribunal, #Justice Atedze William Agwdza, granted the prayers and adjourned till 7th July, 2015 for hearing on motion on notice.
