“In The Federal High Court Of Nigeria, In The Abuja Division
Holden At Abuja”
Within thirty (30) days after service of this Summons on them inclusive of
the day of such service cause appearance to be entered for them to this
summons which is issued upon the application of the claimants whose address
within jurisdiction is C/o Chibuzor C. Ezike Esq of Chibuzor C. Ezike & Co
suite F35, Efab Mall Extension Area 11, Garki Abuja.
The CUPP launched the new legal offensive in a bid to project the
principles of our nations constitutional governance and seeking that the
court should declare the offices vacant.
Section 151(3) of the 1999 constitution as amended clearly provides:
(3) any appointment made pursuant to the provisions of this section shall
be at the pleasure of the president and shall cease when the President
cease to hold office.
However, the president first term office expired the midnight of may 28,
2019 and because he was declare winner of the presidential election he was
sworn in again, with fresh oaths and new mandate.
Hence all political appointments except statutory ones made ceased to exist
at the expiration of the constitutional mandate of four years and needs
renewal if the president wants such officers in their former position again.
