Group gives Jonathan 14 days to retire Salami

Published by Tribune on Thu, 05 Jan 2012


An Abuja based nongovernmentalorganisation, the Society for Rule of Law in Nigeria (SRLN), has said it will commence legal action against President Goodluck Jonathan, if he fails to implement the National Judicial Council (NJC) recommendation on the retirement of the suspended President of the Court of Appeal (PCA), Justice Isa Ayo Salami, within the next 14 days.The group said that President Jonathan's refusal to retire Justice Salami in accordance with the NJC recommendation of August 18, 2011 was a direct invitation to anarchy in the judiciary, adding that; 'The earlier the Salami judicial debacle is laid to rest, the better for the judiciary in the country.'At its seventh emergency meeting held in August 2011, the NJC had suspended Justice Salami from office with effect from August 18, 2011 and also recommended his retirement to President Jonathan.Justice Dalhatu Adamu was subsequently appointed as Acting President Court of Appeal by President Jonathan, and since then, nothing has been done to effect the main recommendation of the NJC, which bordered on Justice Salami's retirement.In a statement issued on Wednesday by its co-ordinator, Comrade Chima Ubeku, the SRLN said, it was worried that in spite of the pendency of the suit filed against the NJC recommendation by Justice Salami, the Judicial Reform Stakeholders Committee, headed by retired Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Muhammed Lawal Uwais (rtd), could make recommendations, calling for Justice Salami's reinstatement.
