Sanction Justice Ademola For Mischief - APC Urges Chief Justice Of Nigeria.

The All Progressives Congress APC has said Justice Adeniyi Ademola did not order the thirty seven members of the House of Representatives who defected to the APC to vacate their seats because he is not competent to issue such a ruling, as the issue of whether not or they can defect was not before him.

In a statement issued in Lagos by its Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party however said it is appealing the ruling because Justice Ademola's perpetual injunction restraining the concerned lawmakers from participating in motions and debates in the House is unconstitutional and defeats the very purpose for which the members were elected into the House.

It said Justice Ademola's unsolicited comments were clearly unnecessary and has no foundation in law or fact hence should be ignored.

APC asked the Chief Justice of Nigeria to act urgently to sanction Justice Ademola for engaging in what it called mischief that could bring the bench into disrepute.
