10 Dead Judges Among Newly Appointed Election Petition Tribunals’ Members by dre11(m): 6:47am On Jan 28
By Idongesit Ashameri


Uyo – Lawyers in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, have alerted on the appointment of dead and retired judges as members of the recently sworn-in 250 election tribunal members.

The group of concerned lawyers who declined being identified faulted the list of the recently sworn in 250-tribunal members as parading over 10 names of dead and retired judges.

Though admitting that this would not be the first time the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government has displayed this level of “cluelessness and carelessness in handling sensitive issues concerning Nigeria”, they described a posthumous appointment of anyone for such sensitive role in the country as burying Nigeria alive.


It could be recalled that the new acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Tanko Mohammed on Saturday, January 26 swore in 250 members of the election tribunals at the Supreme Court Complex in Abuja.

This has continued to generate heated criticisms by both members of the legal community and social media users who have pointed to some Nigerians who have long been dead and buried, but have posthumously made the list.


One of the lawyers who spoke to our correspondent on condition of anonymity said that up to 10 judges in the list were dead.

He identified some of the late appointees to include Justice Edemekong Edemekong whose name appeared as number 58 on the list and declared that the late Justice died since 2013. Another, Justice Chukwu, from Ebonyi State and number 53 on the list, who was formerly of the Federal High Court is also said to have been long dead.

The lawyer’s revelation also indicated that Justice Stephen Okon, a retired Chief Judge of Akwa Ibom State and justice Okoyo Essang (number 56), a retired justice of the High Court in Akwa Ibom State, both made the list.

The lawyers expressed concerns that if such errors could be spotted at a glance on such a sensitive list and on the first official outing of the new acting CJN, then Nigeria may be heading towards a doom.

“If dead and retired men are to sit on our election petition tribunal, then the APC-led federal government is out to drown this country and we vehemently reject a list parading dead men as members of the tribunal,” they said.

DEMOCRAZY!

Is somebody even aware that BVN has revealed more bank accounts belonging the suspended CJN? ...So if he were a rapist, as opposed to money laundering, what we are saying is that so long as NJC fails to remove him, he can continue raping women at will...

See the unfolding of corruption in the judiciary, you know this judges are dead and their names are still listed as persons to receive allocation.

The bold move by President Buhari is really exposing a lot of unethical practices in the judiciary.

Who knows how many more dead judges that are receiving monthly allocation under Onnoghen.

This is disturbing!

It's obvious the former CJN had a terrible agenda to have included 10 dead judges in his list and I'm also sure that there are more dead judges he's been using to manipulate his ways in the judiciary.


This is very shameful! And to think some people are supporting this man shows why the anti-corruption bid of President Buhari is struggling in prosecution process especially when the judge at the top is highly corrupt.

Jesusloveyou:
thief onnoghen supervise court of appeal president what to do,
the court of appeal president will soon go the way of thief onnoghen
harrisonford001:
Ex CJN compiled the list! There's no peace for the wicked
Jesusloveyou:
no you are not done, you lovers of CORRUPTION,
you can see the handiwork of thief onnoghen.

Stupidity on its own is usually harmless. But when it meets with illiteracy, the result is disastrous.
These are the people I'm expected to engage on nairaland.
