The Chief Judge of the high court, Justice Abdul Abdu-Kafarati, assigned the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/712/2018, to Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu for a speedy hearing.

A constitutional lawyer, Mr. Francis Obalim, had brought the matter before the court, praying for an order quashing and setting aside Mrs. Adeosun’s appointment as a Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria by President Muhammadu Buhari, after an online medium, Premium Times reportedly accused her that she forged her discharge certificate.

Barr. Obalim, through his counsel, Johnmary Jideobi, has also prayed the court for an order of perpetual injunction, restraining FG from further according a Ministerial status to the Adeosun until she presents a valid certificate of discharge regularly issued by the NYSC.

The lawyer also wants the court to compel the 1st defendant to refund forthwith to FG, through the Treasury Single Account domiciled at the Central Bank of Nigeria, all the salaries, emoluments, allowances and such other benefits she has enjoyed since her resumption as a Minister in 2015.
