Okorocha appeals reinstatement of monarch

Published by The Nation on Tue, 10 Feb 2015

Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has filed a fresh appeal at the Supreme Court against the decision of the Court of Appeal reinstating the sacked Chairman of Imo State Council of Traditional Rulers, Cletus Ilomuanya.Okorocha had, in his maiden broadcast on June 6, 2011, dissolved the Imo State Council of Ndi Eze. Ilomuanya challenged the governors decision in the court.The High Court decided the case against him, prompting him to appeal at the Court of Appeal, which reinstated him.Okorocha, who was dissatisfied with the Court of Appeals decision, appealed to Supreme Court.Last Thursday, when the case was called at the Supreme Court, Justice John Fabiyi (who presided) struck out the suit on the ground that the appellant failed to first obtain the courts leave as required.Imo States Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice Chukwuma-Machukwu Ume (SAN), who represented Okorocha, restated the case by filing a fresh one marked: SC9/ 2015.Okorocha wants the apex court to hold that the five-year tenure of Ilumounya had elapsed on January 28, this year, having been appointed on January 28, 2010 by the states former governor, Ikedi Ohakim.Okorocha also filed a motion for a stay of execution of the Court of Appeal judgment pending the determination of his fresh appeal.Relying on the decision of the Supreme Court in the case of Rashidi Adewolu Ladoja and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Okorocha argued that Ilumounyas tenure could not be extended.The states Attorney General has, however, petitioned the Inspector-General of Police Suleiman Abba over the alleged attempt by Ilumounya to mislead the public on the appeal which is still pending.Copies of the petition were also sent to the Imo state Police Commissioner and the Deputy Chief Registrar of the Court of Appeal.The post Okorocha appeals reinstatement of monarch appeared first on The Nation.]]>
