THE Court of Appeal sitting in Jos has set aside the judgment of the Bauchi State High Court which reinstated the erstwhile Deputy Governor of the State, Muhammad Garba Gadi, asking him to pay the sum of N30, 000 as cost to the appellants in the case.
The judgment of the Appeal Court constituted by Justices Oyebisi Folayemi, Ibrahim Shata Boliya and Peter Olabisi Ige was delivered on July 26, 2013 following the appeal against the ruling of the lower court delivered on the June 25, 2010, which declared that Gadi’s removal was unconstitutional, null and void.
The judgment copies of which were made available to journalists in Bauchi yesterday by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Ishola Michael Adeyemi, reads in part: “Three issues were placed before the Court of Appeal. All three issues were resolved in favour of the appellants, in order words, the appeal succeeded.’’
