Recall that the National Judicial Council, NJC, reversed the action of the Governor, saying that Justice Obisike Orji who was sworn-in as the Acting Chief Judge was not the proper person to act. The council went further to suspend Justice Obisike Orji for accepting to be sworn-in, knowing that he was not the most senior Judge in the hierarchy, a rule, respected and guided jealously in the judiciary. Worried by the embarrassment the action has caused the State and the Governor, the House decided to invite the attorney general who is the chief law officer, to come and explain why he did not advise the Governor properly. Meanwhile, the House has recommended the sack of the suspended Chief Judge of the State, Justice Theresa Uzokwe, saying that she failed to appear before the House Committee that sat over the petition written against her. However, in compliance with NJC’s directive, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, Monday, swore-in Justice Onuoha Kalu Ogwe as Acting Chief Judge of the state. Swearing-in Justice Ogwe, Governor Ikpeazu explained that there was no under current in the decision of the Government except to stabilise the judiciary which should not be left without a head]]>
