The trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki is scheduled to begin on Friday at the Code of Conduct Tribunal over 13-count charges.
The Code of Conduct Tribunal filed the charges last week which range from anticipatory declaration of assets, under declaration of assets and false declaration of assets.
Saraki is accused of failing to declare some assets he acquired while in office as governor; acquiring assets beyond his legitimate earnings and operating foreign accounts while being a public office holder.
The offences dated back to his days as governor of Kwara state during which he served two four-year terms.
The offences, the charge said, violated sections of the Fifth Schedule of the Constitution.
Mr. Saraki is also said to have breached Section 2 of the Code of Conduct Bureau and Tribunal Act an infraction punishable under paragraph 9 of the said Fifth Schedule of the Constitution.
Sources at the Tribunal said Saraki has been served with the summons.
The charges were prepared by M.S. Hassan, a deputy director in the office of the Attorney General of the Federation.
