Katsina Lawmakers Criticise Fed High Cour Judgement

The controversy over a Federal High Court judgement sacking ten members of the national assembly from Katsina state is still generating controversy.

Justice Gladys Olotu of a Federal High Court in Abuja had directed the Independent National Electoral Commission to withdraw the Certificate of Return recently issued to ten lawmakers in obedience to a Supreme Court Judgement in December, 2012.

The ten affected lawmakers, led by Senator Serika Hadi, have raised concern over what they described as the current plans to discredit the Judiciary.

Speaking at a media parley in Abuja, the lawmakers particularly faulted the judgement of Justice Gladys Olotu, saying it has violated all principles judicial hierarchy in the country.

They described the Judgement of Justice Olotu has a direct confrontation with the Judgement delivered by the Supreme Court.
