Shaibu’s Impeachment: panel ignores interlocutory court order

The 7-man panel set up by Hon. Justice Daniel Okungbowa, the Chief Judge of Edo State to investigate the impeachment allegations against the Edo State Deputy Governor, Rt. Hon. Philip Shaibu on Wednesday in a ruling by the Chairman has decided to discountenance an interlocutory order that debarred the Chairman and three other members from participating in the impeachment proceedings on account of bias.

The suit was filed on behalf of the Deputy Governor by his legal team at the Federal High Court Abuja, and was able to secure the order stopping the panel Chairman and members from proceeding with their inaugural sitting.

Counsel to the Deputy Governor of Edo State, Comrade Philip Shaibu, advised the seven-man panel set up by the state Chief Judge, Justice Daniel Okungbowa, to obey the interlocutory order made by the Court.

The seven-man panel headed by retired Justice S. A. Omonuwa was set up by the Chief Judge to investigate the allegations of misconduct levelled against him by the Edo State House of Assembly.

Counsel to Shaibu in the matter in court, Professor Oladoyin Awoyale SAN, said the decision of the panel to continue with its inaugural proceedings amounts to deliberate act of disobedience of a court order and an attempt to foist a fait accompli on the court.

He hinged his stance on the order of a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, which gave an interlocutory order for proceedings of the panel to abate pending the return date when the Chairman and 3 other members of the panel will show cause.
The court had adjourned the matter to April 8, 2024 for the Respondents to obey the order to show cause.
The deputy governor’s counsel further submitted that with the ruling of the Federal High Court Abuja, all parties must abide by the interlocutory order of the court, adding that continuing with the panel would amount to undermining the rule of law.

However, counsel to the House of Assembly, who is the Deputy Clerk, Legal Department, Joe Oaifi Esq, argued that the panel’s sitting was supported by Section 188 (10) of the 1999 Nigerian Constitution, as amended, which forecloses any court from preventing the House of Assembly and the panel from discharging their constitutional responsibilities.

The seven-man panel is headed by retired Justice S. A. Omonuwa, with six other members.

The panel’s Chairman had gone on a short adjournment to determine whether or not they will proceed in the light of the order of court preventing them from sitting.

In his ruling the Chairman agreed with the submission of the counsel for the House of Assembly and said the panel will proceed with its inaugural sitting.
Counsel to Shaibu had to excuse himself from the inaugural proceedings of the panel, in obedience of the order of court.

Justice I. E. Ekwo of the Federal High Court, Abuja had on Thursday the 28th of March 2024 ordered that all Parties in the suit No. FHC/ABJ/CS/405/3024 to show cause why the injunction to maintain status quo ante bellum, pending the hearing and determination of the Originating Motion on Notice Should not be granted.

The Honourable Judge consequently gave the Respondents, including the Chairman and three members members of the panel three days to respond to respond to the Order to show cause on the grant of the restraining order.

The case is between the Edo State Deputy Governor, Comrade Philip Shaibu and the Inspector General of Police, State Security Service, Hon. Justice S. A. Omonua (Rtd) , the chairman representing himself and the members of the panel of seven appointed the by 4th defendant, Edo State Chief Judge and the House of Assembly.

NULGE Suspends two weeks old industrial action following Wike’s intervention

The leadership of the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) has announced the suspension of its 17days old industrial action that commenced on the 12″ of January, 2024 in the six Area Councils and the LEA.

The union indicated that the strike was suspended following the timely intervention of the Minister of FCT Nyesom Wike.

It would be recalled that the FCT branch of the union had issued a seven-day ultimatum to the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) in the FCT to pay its area councils’ staff arrears and other allowances.

The union had threatened to shut down government activities across the six area councils after the ultimatum elapsed without the council chairmen meeting their demands.

In a communiqué issued at the end of the emergency State Executive Council (SEC) meeting of the union which was held at the state secretariat in Gwagwalada, the union urged the six area council chairmen to pay all the outstanding allowances of its staff.

The union in the communiqué said despite having written several mails and interfaces with ALGON, the council chairmen failed to implement the 40 per cent Consolidated Health Salary Structure (CONHESS) and the 25 Consolidated Medical Salary Structure (CONMESS), as well as federal government 35 per cent palliative for FCT area council’s unified staff.
It also held that the council chairmen also failed to remit pension deductions, corporative deductions, payment of hazard allowances, 35 per cent wage award, peculiar allowance and staff promotion arrears.
Apparently piqued by the failure of ALGON to meet their demands after the 7 days Ultimatum the union embarked on strike on the 12th January, following which activities in the 6 area councils were grounded.
However, in a statement issued by the Union’s secretary, Com. Ogueri Bridget, she stated that an agreement has been reached with the Minister that he will pay 40% of the total sum of the outstanding amounting to N2,793,338,491.81.
However, she said it is with a caveat that the payment will be on instulmental bases in four months arrears across the six area councils, while the Council Chairmen will pay 60% balance accruing to each area council totaling 44,190,007,723.28
It also quoted the Minister to have warned that failure to pay, the monthly allocation to the defaulting Area Council will be withheld and the said amount deducted at the source from JAAC.

“In the light of the above, I have been directed to inform you that the strike has been suspended with effect from 30° January, 2024 and you are expected to resume duty with immediate effect.
