Abuja (Channelstv) — The Former President, Goodluck Jonathan has neglected to show up before Justice Okon Abang, as the court starts sitting on account of illegal tax avoidance between the Federal Government and a previous National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh.
The Federal High Court had earlier requested President Goodluck Jonathan to today show up before it, to affirm as an observer with regards to Metuh.
In any case, the court which is managed by Justice Abang struck out the application recorded by Colonel Sambo Dasuki, trying to set aside the request of the court convincing him to show up before it as a protection witness.
Justice Abang in his decision struck out the application on the ground that Colonel Dasuki isn’t a gathering for the situation before him and all things considered the court needs locale to engage the application.
The Court includes that engaging the application will add up to a solicitation to legal rebellion.
In the interim, the Registrar of the Court has quite recently educated the court that the bailiff is yet to serve the previous President with the request of the court.
The previous President was to show up as a resistance witness in the suit recorded by the Federal Government against Metuh.
Mr Metuh is confronting trial for professedly getting N400 million out of the $2.1 billion dollars arms subsidize from the previous National Security Adviser to Dr Jonathan, Colonel Sambo Dasuki
