BUHARI’S MINISTER BARRED FROM HOLDING PUBLIC OFFICE BY COURT

  • Save

The High Court of the Federal Capital Territory has restrained the immediate past Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Pauline Tallen, from holding public office unless she, within 30 days, apologises publicly for disrespecting the court.

The court, presided over by Justice U.P. Kekemeke ruled that the injunction would become perpetual if Tallen, who served under former President Muhammadu Buhari, refused to apologise within the time given by the court.

The Nigerian Bar Association had in December, 2022 disagreed with Tallen, who was a minister at the time, for describing as “a kangaroo judgment that should be rejected by well-meaning Nigerians” the decision of the Federal High Court in Suit No. FHC/YL/12/2022 in Mallam Nuhu Ribadu vs All Progressives Congress (APC) & 2 Ors delivered on October 14, 2022.

The NBA demanded an apology from the minister, failing which it would approach the court.
