WAHALA: AKHA SPEAKER RECEIVES COURT ORDER FROM FURTHER RECOGNISING ITU LAWMAKER AS MEMBER.

Press Statement

The Speaker of the Akwa Ibom state House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. (Barr.) Onofiok Luke, was this morning served with an enrolled order conveying the judgement of the Federal High Court of Nigeria restraining him from further recognising Hon. Idongesit Ituen as a member of the Akwa Ibom state House of Assembly.

The presiding Judge, Honourable Justice F.O. Riman, in his judgment in suit no. FHC/UY/CS/151/18 between Hon. Idongesit Ituen (Plaintiff) and The Speaker of the Akwa Ibom state House of Assembly and two others (defendants), gave the “order of court restraining the Speaker of the Akwa Ibom state House of Assembly or any other person acting on his behalf (including the staff of the House of Assembly) from further recognising Hon. Idongesit Ituen as a member of the Akwa Ibom state House of Assembly.”

Being a declarative judgement, the Honourable Speaker wishes therefore to state clearly that as a law abiding citizen, a lawmaker and a lawyer, he has abided by the court order.
