Appointment Of Judges: Group Heads To Court Over Non-inclusion Of Southeast by Mgbadike80: 9:33pm On Sep 16
The Registered Trustees of Social Justice and Civil Rights Awareness Initiative has instituted a legal action at the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja over the non-appointment of a south easterner as judicial officer in the Federal Capital Territory High Court. Specifically, the suit is seeking an order of court compelling President Muhammadu Buhari to include at least one person from the South East into the list of newly appointed judges of the FCT High Court. The group wants a declaration that the “appointment and/or attempted appointment of judges to the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory without the inclusion of at least one person from the whole of South East Nigeria is unlawful for contravening the 1999 Constitution.” The group is seeking the court to mandate President Buhari, the National Judicial Council, the Judicial Service Committee of the Federal Capital Territory, the Attorney General of the Federation, the Senate and the Federal Character Commission to discontinue the recruitment exercise of appointing new judges to the FCT High Court forthwith until they comply strictly with the Federal Character principles as enshrined in the 1999 Constitution. Therefore, the group is praying for, “A declaration that the attempt to appoint eleven judges to the bench of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory without the inclusion of a single person from any state in the whole of South Eastern Nigeria is discriminatory and against good conscience.” The suit was filed by Alozie Nmerengwa Esq. Meanwhile, following moves to swear in the newly appointed judges (today) Monday, Barrister Nmerengwa has written the Senate and the Chief Justice of Nigeria, drawing their attention to the suit in court, and demanding action. “It will interest you to note that in the year 2018, seven persons were appointed as judges of the FCT High Court and none was considered from the entire South East Zone.” “Again, Again, sometime around 7th July, 2020, eleven names were forwarded to the Senate for confirmation as judges of the FCT High Court and none again was from the South East zone,” Nmerengwa wrote.

It is not fair if this is true. Not only must you be fair, you must seem fair.

Buhari spoke person must explain this.

If it's not a competition why then the hatred That you don't agree on anything doesn't mean u wish then bad thing or hate them.. It's not progressive that we claim to want.. This hatred is nothing but because of politics cos u still support those Igbos that are in the same political party that you like and hate them the moment they switch party..

Like I said, this must be a personal attack.

The objective Igbo's on NL would disagree with @ bolded.

You are probably seeking for an attention.

Here you have it.

Enjoy it while it lasts..

We love all . Igbos gave GEJ more votes than the people of SS . Igbos are only reacting to the hates other have on them . Igbo interests are attacked ( politics , business , properties etc ) every where in Nigeria whileIgbos do not attack other people .

I stand to disagree with u on this. I've for long been a very formidable lover of igbo. Your coment on attacking igbo politically, buz, properties etc everywhere is a lie. Also, ur claim that igbo doesnt attack other people is also a big lie. I'm a yoruba currently seeving in IMO, u need to see how things are done here. Personal, I love them, my people here love me. The only thing I relate FG and Igbo case to is FG trying to play safe cos the Trust isnt there anylonger.
