President Goodluck Jonathan has approved the compulsory
retirement of Justices Gladys Olotu and U. A. Inyang of the
Federal High Court and FCT High Court respectively with effect
from February 3 2014.
Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice,
Mohammed Adoke, who confirmed this to State House
correspondents, said the compulsory retirement is in accordance with
the recommendation of the National Judicial Council.
It would be recalled that the NJC last week announced the
suspension of the justices for  for gross misconduct after which it
forwarded a recommendation for their cumpulsory retirement to
President Goodluck Jonathan.
Giving details of the misdemeanour of the affected justices, the Acting
Director of Information in the NJC, Soji Oye had explained that
the council, headed by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Aloma
Mukhtar “recommended the compulsory retirement from office of
Justice G.K. Olotu of the Federal High Court and Justice U. A.
Inyang of High Court of Justice of the Federal Capital Territory,
Abuja, respectively for gross misconduct.”
He said the recommendation for compulsory retirement of the two
judges was based on findings made by the NJC after investigations into
allegations contained in petitions brought against them.
The NJC found that Justice Olotu “failed to deliver judgment on
Suit No. FHC/UY/250/2003, 18 months after the final address by
all the counsel in the suit, contrary to the constitutional provisions that
judgments should be delivered within a period of 90 days.”
Also, Justice Olotu “admitted before the Fact Finding Committee of
the Council that investigated the allegations that she forgot she had a
pending ruling to deliver in an application for joinder.”
President Jonathan is now clearing ways for his secret 2015 ambition ,what do u think?
