"According to the maxim, _'He who seeks equity must do equity and equity does not replace or violate the law, but it backs it up and supplements it,'_ we call on the Chief Registrar of the Federal High Court of Nigeria, Mr. Emmanuel Gakko to obey the directive of President Muhammadu Buhari by resigning his position and allow equity to prevail.
"We also call on the Chief Justice of Nigeria and the National Judicial Council, Fjsc to enforce the directive of President Muhammadu Buhari as partners in the fight against corruption in the Judiciary arm of Government.
"Failure for the Chief Registrar of the Federal High Court of Nigeria, Mr. Emmanuel Gakko to resign in 7 days, we shall lead 'a million man march' against him until he steps down from the position he is currently holding , Lamido said.
