These People Are About To Bring Anarchy To Nigeria – Sheriff Raises Alarm

3 Min Read

Embattled factional chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ali Modu Sheriff, has said that some judges in Nigeria are about to bring anarchy to Nigeria.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, Sheriff requested that the chief justice of Nigeria (CJN) look into orders of judges in the federal high court, Port-Harcourt, on the PDP national convention scheduled for Wednesday.

Sheriff expressed shock with the ruling from Port Harcourt, saying it came at a time when “all the judges in Nigeria were on annual vacation”.

“Most judiciary don’t want exparte motion because it denies justice to others. But, let’s accept that the judge decide to do that, the life span of the exparte motion is 14 days,” Sheriff said.

“This means you have time to serve the other people to respond. On that Thursday, the judge gave exparte motion; the next day he converted that exparte motion to interlocutory order.

“On Monday, he sat and heard the main case to give a ruling or judgement today (Tuesday) at 2 p.m. without allowing us as defendants to defend ourselves.

“The truth about it is that the whole thing is a hoax. First, the matter is already in Abuja.

“Ben Obi, who is also a party in Abuja, left the court because the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt has already been taken over by Gov. Wike, who believes that he has public money to do whatever he wants to do.

“These need urgent attention.

“We are calling on the chief judge of the nation to look into Port Harcourt division of the judiciary; otherwise, they will bring anarchy into this country.”

“Urgent attention needs to be taken by the chief judge of the federation, chief judge of the federal high court and the judicial service commission.

“Unless those kinds of people are removed completely, Nigeria will have problem.

“We are joining all other Nigerians to call on CJN and JSC to remove these bad elements in the judiciary, otherwise we will have problem.”
