Updated Thursday 31 August 2017 10:17
The plaintiffs, Otobong Orok and Anekan Akpan, in the suit against Saraki, Ekweremadu and Senator Bassey Albert, asked the court to among other things determine whether or not, the “defendants were not constitutionally bound to immediately swear in the plaintiffs’ representative in the Senate of Nigeria in person of Hon. Bassey Etim.”
The court was also asked to determine whether with the first defendant’s disregard to the order of a High Court of Uyo, he had not become unfit, incompetent and incapable of holding the office of Senate president of Nigeria.
They asked the court to declare that having regard to the provisions of Section 75(1) and (2) of the Electoral Act 2010, Article 7 of the Senate Standing Orders 2015 and other cited laws, that the defendants were constitutionally bound to immediately swear in the plaintiffs’ representative in the Senate.
