The Nigerian Bar Association, Owerri branch has asked the National Judicial Council (NJC) to dismiss the purported Acting CJN, Honourable Justice Ibrahim Tanko who according to them, presented himself to be sworn in, in circumstances that they are in pari material with the Abia State case.

The branch has asked the Council to follow the laid down precedent, following some resolutions held in its monthly meeting held on the 26th day of January, 2019.

The branch in its resolutions held that the NBA should take all other steps including, but not limited to the total boycott of Courts and if the need arises, the shutting down of the polity in collaboration with Civil Society Groups.

The branch also called for the resignation of the Vice President of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, and the Attorney General of the Federal, and further asked that disciplinary measures be taken against the duo by the disciplinary committee of the Bar.

Below reads the resolutions:

1. That Owerri Bar rejects in its entirety the purported and unconstitutional suspension of the Hon. CJN by the President of FRN.

2. That Owerri Bar hereby empowers the chairman and executive members of the Bar to attend the NEC meeting of the NBA on Monday 28/01/2019 and insist on the branch position that all legal process must be followed to ensure that this Constitutional breach is reversed.

3. That in addition to (2) above, Owerri Bar resolved that NBA should take all other steps including but not limited to the total boycott of Courts and if the need arises the shutting down of the polity in collaboration with Civil Society Groups.

4. That the Attorney General of the Federation and the Vice President be called upon to resign for being complicit in the Constitutional breach.
