Court grants Tambuwal's constituents joinder application

10 December 2014, 17:27

Abuja - An Abuja Federal High Court on Tuesday granted an application by some Kebbe/Tambuwal Federal constituents, Sokoto State, seeking to appeal against the court's Monday ruling refusing to join them as defendants.

The constituents had sought to be joined in the suit instituted by Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, to stop his removal as speaker over his defection.

Justice Ahmed Mohammed granted the application after listening to the submission of their counsel, Israel Olorundare (SAN), for leave of court to appeal against the ruling.

"The applicants’ prayer seeking the leave of court to appeal the earlier ruling on joinder is hereby granted as prayed,’’ he said.

The proceedings were stalled when Olorundare and Monisore Onigbanjo (SAN), Counsel to Sokoto State legislators, said they had filed separate applications for stay of proceedings.

The applications were hinged on the grounds that they had filed notices of appeal against the ruling of the court which on Monday disallowed them to be joined as defendants.

The constituents were opposed to any move to remove Tambuwal as speaker or declare his seat vacant, arguing that it would deprive them of representation in the House of Representatives.

Justice Mohammed adjourned the case till December 16 for further hearing.
