“President Buhari , Appoint Ministers Now Or Step Down” — Lagos lawyer

Controversial Lagos lawyer and activist, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, has filed a fresh suit against the Buhari government for ‘delaying to form a cabinet and for running the affairs of Nigeria as a lone ranger as well as in a dictatorial manner.’

In a suit he filed today at the Federal High Court, Lagos, the lawyer said the continued stay of action of President Buhari on the appointment of his Ministers was contrary to the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The lawyer therefore requested for the determination of the following questions:

That : 1. Whether under and by virtue of section 147(1) and (2) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999, the 1st Respondent is not obliged and under a duty to appoint qualified persons into offices to function as the Ministers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, upon his swearing in and oath of office since May 29, 2015.

2. Whether the failure, omission or neglect by the 1st Respondent to appoint qualified persons into offices to function as the Ministers of The Federal Republic of Nigeria is not illegal and a contravention of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999, such as to disqualify the 1st Respondent from continuing to function in office as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

3. Whether the 1st Respondent is entitled to run and administer the affairs of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as his personal family empire or as a lone ranger and in a dictatorial manner, without appointing qualified persons to run the affairs of the country with him in the Federal Executive Council in contravention of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999.

4. Whether under and by virtue of Section 148(1) and (2) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999, the 1st Respondent is not under a duty to hold regular meetings with Ministers of The Federal Republic of Nigeria, duly appointed by him, to formulate policies for and plan the affairs of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and not to be running and operating same as a private family empire or as a lone ranger or as a dictator.

5. Whether the 1st Respondent, upon his swearing in and oath of office since May 29, 2015, is entitled to abandon, discard or jettison the office and residence of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, otherwise known as Aso Rock Villa, Federal Capital Territory, Abuja and to be running the affairs of the Federal Republic of Nigeria from some illegal and unknown location or premises other than the said Aso Rock Villa.

6. Whether under and by virtue of Section 150 CFRN 1999, the 1st Respondent being a commissioned officer of the Nigeria Army (now retired) trained strictly in warfare and garrison affairs is so qualified, fit and proper to run the affairs of the Federal Republic of Nigeria alone and without a qualified person appointed into the office of Attorney General of The Federation.
