THE JUDICIARY ON TRIAL AGAIN
13th July 2016
The truth is that if Nigeria continues to go the way it is going now, then the little respect Nigerians have for the judiciary will completely be thrown to the dogs. Legal practitioners who are supposed to be more concerned about the rape of their profession are unfortunately the ones who are digging the grave for the final interment of their profession.
Although many among the observers are not legal practitioners, but we are not unlearned as lawyers would want to address those who do not carry the law certificate. With what is unfolding in Abia state and some happenings within the judicial system, one can say mindfully that some of the learned gentlemen are not really learned.
...Shameless Judiciary keeps mute while the Executive rapes the law and constitution with impunity
If a lawyer like Femi Falana and Olisa Agbakoba could not come out when their profession is at stake and defend the rule of law, then one begins to wonder if anything like judiciary exists in this country called Nigeria.

Some of our legal practitioners have chosen to defend their aspirations and political leaning than to tackle the responsibilities of its body which left many with no choice than to beam the anti-corruption searchlights on the Nigeria law schools who initiated lawyers into the bar, and legal councils who awards the SAN laurels.
From the interpretation I got, I understand that if a judgement is given by a federal high court, which is the court of the first instance, and the individual to whom judgement went against appeals against the judgement and files for stay of execution, then all process towards implementing such verdict should be put on hold till the case has its whole course.

For INEC to issue a certificate of return to Uche Sampson Ogah when it's aware that the second party had gone to appeal is a shame and disgrace to the judiciary. What this means is that anybody can come out any day and disobey court orders and go free.
This rape of judiciary started a long time ago but showcased when a federal high court released the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra Mazi Nnamdi Kanu but the DSS and Mr. Muhammadu Buhari refused to obey and allow an innocent man to go. Many came out to say this is very bad for Nigerian judiciary, while many of our learned gentlemen sat back at their houses thinking as if it doesn't concern them.
The judiciary as a separate body of government should be courageous enough to tackle any judicial case facing them without fear or favour or minding the calibre of the person involved, then and only then will a poor man on the street beat his chest and say "I have confidence in the Nigerian judicial system".

No doubt that peace and law abiding people will never like to live in a country where there is no law, where the rule of law is not obeyed and the so-called constitution is not working. The world to also see why the Indigenous people of Biafra is seeking to exit this illegal contraption titled Nigeria.
