Abuja: Court Says Defection Of Saraki, Dogara, Others Is Unlawful


Abuja: Conveying the judgment on Friday, 17th May, Justice Okon Abang held that dependent on the judgment of the Supreme Court, which gave reasons that would take into consideration absconding, the legislators did not meet that necessity.

The judgment pursued a suit documented by the Legal Defense Assistance Project (LEDAP), testing the surrender of the Senate President Dr Bukola Saraki, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara and 51 different administrators.

LEDAP had requested that the court request the administrators to empty their seats in the National Assembly and return all pay rates and stipends earned since their abandonment, contending that the legislators absconded from their ideological groups for childish reasons other than division in their gatherings as endorsed by law.

Inquisitively, on account of one of the officials, Senator Godswill Akpabio, Justice Abang held that he isn’t infringing upon the law since he neither deserted nor absconded to the All Progressives Congress (APC) with the realities under the steady gaze of the court.
