share on:

A constitutional legal counselor, Mr. Johnmary Jideobi, has dragged President Muhammadu Buhari under the watchful eye of the Federal High Court in Abuja, charging that he affirmed illicit arrangements in the

Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC.

The Abuja based legitimate professional is asking the high court to proclaim that it was unlawful for President Buhari to singularly affirm arrangements or any type of re-association in the NNPC without info and thought of its Board of Directors.

Aside from President Buhari, different litigants in the suit checked FHC/ABJ/CS/990/2017 are the Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Dr. Maikanti Baru, the NNPC itself and its Board of Directors.

In particular, the offended party, is imploring the court to in addition to other things, decide “Whether in perspective of area 2 subsection (1) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Act, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004, as revised, read close by Section 5(1) (an) of the changed 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, both of the first Defendant or the fourth Defendant (Baru and Buhari), is qualified in law for singularly make or support arrangements into any position inside the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation [the second Defendant herein] or some other type of redesign in the second Defendant, without the earlier info, thought and endorsement of the Board of Directors of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation [the third Defendant herein] ?

“Whether in view of Section 13 of African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights [Ratification and Enforcement] Act Cap 10, Laws of the Federation (LFN), 1990, the Plaintiff herein is clothed with the requisite locus standi to prosecute this claim?

Against the foundation of the appropriate responses that might be given to the above inquiries of law the offended party asserts the accompanying reliefs from this Honorable Court”.
