Ministerial inauguration to proceed as court dismiss application to stop the ceremony

The application filed by a lawyer to prevent President Muhammadu Buhari from inauguration of newly appointed Ministers by Musa Baba-Panya before the Federal High Court in Abuja did not hold waters before Justice Taiwo who today dismiss the case for lack of substantive suit and give a formal judgment rather than granting interim restraining orders as sought by the plaintiff.
The judge ordered the plaintiff to effect personal service of the originating and other processes so far filed in the case on the defendants and return for a date for hearing.
The plaintiff’s contention is to the effect that the President’s non-nomination of an Abuja indigene as a ministerial nominee was disobedience of a subsisting judgment of the Court of Appeal.
Baba-Panya claimed that the Court of Appeal, in the judgment delivered on March 15, 2018 in Abuja, held among others, that Abuja possesses the status of a state and should be so treated.
To the plaintiff, since the Constitution stipulates that every state of the federation should produce a minister, Abuja deserves to also be considered.
