Report submitted to the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, NGF, has raised some questions about the legitimacy of two judgments of $3,188,079,505.96 given against the Federal Government by a Federal High Court in Abuja in favour of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria, ALGON, some firms and two lawyers.
Also listed as beneficiaries of the judgments are – Linas International Limited, Phil-Tech Nigeria Limited, Riok Nigeria Limited, XI Nigeria Limited, Snecou Group of Companies Limited, Wells Procurement Services Limited, Systematic Engineering Limited, Prince Orji Nwafor –Orizu and Bello Olaitan Busayo.
The report was from an investigation commissioned by the NGF last year, into proceedings leading to the judgments given in 2013, and upon which four garnishee orders were issued between February and April this year against the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN.
The report has raised doubts about the conduct of the immediate past Attorney General of the Federation, the ex- Minister of Finance and Accountant General of the Federation, who were defendants in the case.
It revealed how the AGF, the Minister of Finance and Accountant General of the Federation allegedly neglected to defend both suits, which sought to deprive the country huge sums of money, raising questions about the actual motive behind the suits.
The report also captured the presiding judge’s comment about the attitude of the AGF and others in conducting the cases marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/129/2013 and FHC/ABJ/CS/130/2013.
Justice Adeniyi Ademola noted in one of the judgments, that the 3rd and 4th defendants (Finance Minister and Accountant General) “did not file any process in opposition to the plaintiffs’ case,” while the 1st and 2nd defendants (FGN and AGF) filed a counter affidavit.
The investigation was conducted by an Abuja-based security expert and Chief Executive Officer of a private security firm, Panic Alert Security System, PASS, George Uboh.
Uboh urged the NGF and the federal government to thoroughly investigate the process leading to the judgments, the refusal of the AGF and the other defendants to appeal and subsequent garnishee orders made by the court in Abuja.
