Adamawa: Fintiri asks court to sack Ngilari


Sacked Acting Governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, has faulted Wednesday's judgment of a Federal High Court, Abuja, which removed him from office.

He argued that the trial judge, Justice Adeniyi Ademola, erred in law when he held that the former deputy governor (now Governor), James Bala Ngilari did not resign in accordance with constitutional provision.

Fintiri's contention is contained in a notice of appeal filed by his lawyer, Duro Adeyele (SAN), and in which he raised eight grounds of appeal.

He wants the Court of Appeal in Abuja to set aside the judgment by Justice Ademola, dismiss the suit by Ngilari on the ground that it was defective or in the and refer the case for hearing before another Federal High Court by way of writ of summons.

Listed as respondents in the appeal are – Ngilari, Speaker of the Admawa State House of Assembly, House of Assembly, impeached governor Murtala Nyako and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
