Calabar: Justice Simon Amobeda Was Finally Transferred To Maiduguri Six Months After Agba Jalingo Wrote This…

 

A court order from the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt’s vacation judge has barred INEC from recognizing any PDP nominee for the Cross River Northern Senatorial by-election on October 31, 2020.

The federal high courts’ recess will end on Friday, September 25th, and the courts will reopen on Monday, September 28th.

Governor Ayade went forum shopping for an injunction for his chosen candidate to be declared while the matter is still pending in Port Harcourt. He went to Justice Simon Akpa Amobeda of the Federal High Court in Calabar, a friend of his.

Justice Amobeda arrived in Calabar on Sunday and issued an injunction in favor of Ayade’s preferred candidate, ordering INEC to list the candidate’s name as the rightful candidate pending the outcome of the motion on notice before him on Monday, September 21st. This is taking place when you are on holiday. This was done in broad daylight.

When were the legal documents filed?

The two vacation judges in the South South are Hon. Justices I.M. Sani and I.O. Oshomah. When Justice Simon Amobeda is not a holiday lawyer, how did he manage to sit during his vacation?

Is it true that Justice Amobeda was given a fiat to sit during his vacation?
What is Justice Amobeda’s unique interest in Cross River politics?

He’s had so many contentious positions in partisan political situations in our state that he’s left a lot to be desired.

He’s the same judge who said on the eve of the election that the APC didn’t have a nominee for the governorship election in 2019.

He is the same judge who dismissed Barrister First Baba Isa’s lawsuit challenging Governor Ayade’s unconstitutional establishment of ministries on the exclusive list.

In Cross River State, he is the judge who issues all pro Ayade decisions.

Governor Ayade seems to have turned Justice Simon Amobeda into a weapon in his hands to frustrate the wishes of the good citizens of Cross River State.

I’m glad another petition against Amobeda has been sent to NJC. Enable more to follow. When the courts are not in session, he must explain how the injunction was issued.
