The suit was dismissed by a seven-man panel of Justices of the apex court, led by Justice Rhodes Bode-Vivour.
247NNU reported yesterday that the Senate President, Bukola Saraki withdrew the matter from the court following the National Judicial Council’s intervention.
The Senate had in the suit marked SC.76/2019, invoked the original jurisdiction of the Supreme Court, demanding that the court determine whether Buhari has the constitutional powers to unilaterally suspend the CJN.
The lawyer told the apex court panel that his client had earlier filed a notice of discontinuance, though he did not adduce any reasons behind the decision.
Federal Government lawyer, Mrs. Maimuna Lami Shiro, said President Buhari and the AGF were not opposed to the request to abort hearing on the suit.
Consequently, Justice Bode-Vivour struck out the matter. SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
