•Senator Babafemi Ojudu: a mind boggling revelation

The Supreme Court has dismissed the case instituted by Senator Bode Ola against Senator Babafemi Ojudu and the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, describing it as frivolous.

Senator Ola had instituted the case claiming that he actually won the ACN senatorial primaries and had lost at both the trial court and the Appeal Court.

Speaking on behalf of the other justices, the presiding Justice, Tanko Mohammed, said the case was a non-starter and that processes and procedures were not followed.

The case being of fact and law, the presiding justice said Bode Ola’s counsel ought to have sought the relief of the court to file the appeal, but that the appeal was filed before the relief was sought, adding that the Supreme Court cannot be hoodwinked.

Justice Mohammed said the case before the court was frivolous and that the Supreme Court would not get involved in frivolity.

He wondered how the case got listed in the first instance, describing it as a waste of their time.

Visibly angry, the judges also warned that on no account should the Supreme Court be reduced to a court of frivolities, saying that what they had before them was not an appeal, but a bunch of useless papers.

The court, however, said it was not the fault of Bode Ola’s counsel, Dr. Olumide Ayeni, who led the sixth set of lawyers hired by Bode Ola, stressing that the case was bad through and through.

The court then dismissed the case and awarded costs to Senator Ojudu and ACN.
