Supreme Court Struck out Suit Regarding Virtual Court Sittings

Published

on

The Supreme Court has struck out a suit brought by the Attorney- General of Ekiti State, Olawale Fapohunda, against the Attorney-General of the Federation regarding the legality of virtual court sittings.

In the suit, Mr Fapohunda asked the court to determine whether the directive issued by the AGF to the Heads of Courts at Federal and State levels, as it relates to the conduct of virtual proceedings in court, is not a violation of the federalism provisions of the 1999 Constitution.

He also asked the apex court to determine if the directive issued in line with the National Judicial Council is not a violation of the constitutional provisions on fair hearing as it relates to the conduct of criminal trials in public.

Furthermore, Fapohunda asked the court to set aside or strike down directives to the extent that they purport to be binding on the Ekiti State High Court for being inconsistent with the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Apart from the Attorney General of the Federation, the Attorneys General of Lagos and Ogun States who have implemented virtual court proceedings were also listed as second and third defendants.

Ekiti State further asked that the Supreme Court determines whether the AGF’s guidelines are not a derogation from the legislative, executive and judicial law-making, law execution and adjudicatory rules making powers exclusively vested in states of the federation in respect of states courts, by virtue of Sections 1(3), 4(6), 5(2), 6(2), 272 and 272 and 274 of the Constitution.

PDP to APC – Acceptance of Wrecking Naira is a Sabotage

Published

PDP Flag

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the acceptance by the All Progressives Congress (APC) that it retained a Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor that allegedly supervised the sharing of money and looting of our treasury, is an admission that it deliberately sabotaged the economy and made life very difficult for Nigerians.

The PDP invites Nigerians to note the nerviness, uneasiness and tension that have gripped the APC since the call for the resignation and prosecution of the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, was brought to the public, apparently for fear that such will definitely expose the atrocities of APC leaders.

Our party insists that by the comments of the APC National Secretary, Senator John Akpan Udoedehe, the APC deliberately kept a CBN Governor that supposedly supervised the “sharing and looting” of monies in office to enable APC leaders to pillage the CBN.

Akpan Udoedehe might want to be reminded that General Buhari, as he was then known, had in his campaign, promised to fight corruption, yet he retained a CBN Governor, who his party is now accusing of having superintend over “sharing and looting” of funds in the CBN.

Is it not revealing that six years down the line, with the naira heavily depreciated, the same CBN Governor, whom Akpan Udoedehe claimed to have supervised the “sharing and looting” of monies in CBN is still in office?

We call on the APC and the Buhari Presidency to come clean on their activities in the CBN that has brought the value of our naira to her knees and stop the horrible resort by the APC to blackmail those who are demanding for transparency and accountability in the nation’s fiscal sector.
