Jonathan sued by ex-judge

06 March 2014, 08:00

Abuja - Justice Gladys Olotu, one of the two judges whose compulsory retirement was approved by President Goodluck Jonathan recently, on Wednesday, challenged her retirement before an Abuja Federal High court.

Olotu, in a motion ex-parte filed before Justice Ademola Adeniyi and heard in chambers, is seeking leave to apply for an order of certiorari for judicial review of her case.

Sunday Ameh (SAN), her counsel who filed the application on her behalf, said that the suit was intended at protecting his client’s fundamental rights.

Joined in the suit as respondents are President Goodluck Jonathan, the National Judicial Council (NJC), the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court and the Attorney-General of the Federation.

The NJC had on February 27 recommended her compulsory retirement with Justice Ufot Inyang of the FCT High Court to the president.

The NJC had in a statement signed by Soji Oye, its Head of Information, said the decision to recommend her for compulsory retirement was informed by its ``findings on the allegations of gross misconduct contained in the petitions written against her.’’

Justice Ademola fixed hearing in the matter for March 19 and ordered that all parties in the case be served with the motion.
