The Supreme Court has dismissed the certificate forgery case the All Progressives Congress, APC, and one of its members, Mr. Williams Edobor, filed against Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State.
In a unanimous decision, a five-man panel of justices of the apex court, held that the Appellants failed to prove their case against Obaseki.
Consequently, the panel awarded N1million cost against the appellant, in favour of Obaseki.
Meanwhile, protesting members of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, JUSUN, barred journalists from entry into the Supreme Court room, but granted access to a handful of lawyers and politicians.
JUSUN had on April 6, ordered its members across the federation to shut all courts in the country to press home their demand for implementation of financial autonomy for the judiciary.
