Group acknowledges receipt of CJN’s query to Abuja judge, Gummi

Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai

A civil rights coalition, Civil Society Network Against Corruption, has sent a letter of commendation to the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Aloma Mukhtar, on her prompt response to its petition over revelations in the memoir of former minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nasir El-Rufai, “The Accidental Public Servant” over “behind the courts” dealing with the Justice Lawal Gummi during his tenure as minister of the FCT.

In a letter dated 10 June, 2013, the group said it has received a copy of the query issued to Mr. Gummi over the allegation from the CJN.

“Your Ladyship, we are most impressed by the promptitude in your responses to this and other matters bothering on the integrity of the Judiciary, under your able leadership,” the letter read.

In his memoir, Mr. El-Rufai alleges that he had approached Mr. Gummi who was the Chief Judge of the FCT at the time and an “old boy” of his Alma Mater, Barewa College, to help solve some “protocol issue” that can “hamper [his] effectiveness.”

“My goal was to ensure that the judiciary was fully on-board with our reform direction, guide us on the limits of our actions from time to time and hopefully minimise situations in which ex-parte injunctions would be issued by FCT judges to slow down the needed restoration of the Abuja master plan,” Mr. El-Rufai said. “We also decided to budget an annual grant to support the judiciary to procure court recording and automation equipment.”
