Arising from it’s sitting on Friday 23 July 2021, the Federal High Court in Abuja presided over by Hon. Justice I. E Ekwo has fixed October 11, 2021 for the Motion to set aside the Order of 29th March 2021 obtained and bandied about by Mohammed Abubakar and his collaborator, Hon. Abdullahi Maje, the Suleja Local Government Chairman.
It will be recalled that in filing the Suit and obtaining the Court Order, Mohammed Abubakar misled the Federal High Court into believing he had the consent and authority of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) Board of Trustees to file the suit in Court.
Following the same pattern of disdain for judicial proceedings, Abdullahi Maje was said to have continued to misrepresent the contents of the Order to the general public!
Regarding the Order, Hon Abdullahi S. Maje had falsely claimed, amongst other things, that: The Hon. Judge restrained Hon. Alabi Kolade David from acting as the National President of ALGON; that the Hon. Judge directed the inauguration of an Interim Management Committee (IMC) for ALGON.
In obtaining the Order, Abdullahi S. Maje and his Co-traveller, Mohammed Abubakar, was reported to have also misled the men and officers of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command into believing the Court Order empowered them to take over ALGON.
The court Order was obtained on 29th March 2021 by suppressing from the Court, the fact that ALGON General Assembly, which the plaintiff sought to restrained, had already been conducted and concluded five days earlier on 24 March 2021.
When the matter was called up on Friday, the Counsel to Mohammed Abubakar and Hon. Abdullahi Maje expressed unpreparedness to proceed having only served his response on the Lead Defendant Counsel to ALGON on Friday morning, right in open court.
The matter was consequently adjourned to October 11, 2021 by the presiding Judge.
ALGON, an Association whose foundation is anchored on rule of law, has maintained its call on the general public to be wary of all falsehood peddled against the Alabi Kolade David led national leadership and pledges to continue to serve the citizens within the ambit of Law and Order.
