Peter Mbah: Odinkalu frowns at court order restraining NYSC
Former Chairman of Nigeria’s National Human Rights Commission, Prof. Chidi Odinkalu has frowned at the recent court order restraining the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, from publishing a disclaimer, denying the issuance of certificate to the Enugu State Governor-elect, Mr Peter Mbah.
Odinkalu wondered how a judge with a clear conscience could think of making such an order.
His statement was contained in a post via his Twitter handle on Monday.
Recall that Justice Inyang Ekwo had in an ex parte order barred the NYSC from continuing to issue a disclaimer to the effect that Mbah’s NYSC certificate was not issued by the Corps.
DAILY POST reports that the NYSC had in February written a letter signed by Ibrahim Muhammed stating that the NYSC certificate belonging to Mbah was not issued by the Corps.
Mbah won the March 18 gubernatorial election in Enugu State under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,
However, Odinkalu claimed that a judge could not make such an order with a clear conscience.
He wrote, “How on earth does a judge even think of making this kind of order with a clear conscience unless there are things involved that a judge should not be involved with….?”
