The ailing Governor of Taraba State, Danbaba Suntai, is arriving the country on Monday night from London, after a one week medical follow-up, his spokesperson, Hassan Mijinyawa, has said.

Mr. Minjinyawa said the governor would arrive the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, at about 10:00p.m. via an unnamed  chartered aircraft.

He would be accompanied by his wife, Hauwa, his medical team as well as security details.

“Mr. Suntai is grateful to the people of Taraba State for their strength of will and continuous prayers for him and the state,” he added.

    The writer makes some interesting arguments. As a work of prose, it is masterful, free-flowing and convincing.
    However, as a product of critical politico-legal thinking (which the article holds itself out to be), it appears to bereft of a sound jurisprudential foundation and, consequently, is light on legal logic and validity.
    In the first place, the writer employs frequent use of the word “consensus”, perhaps in an attempt to drive the message that a “meeting of minds” is required amongst the arms of government in the vaunted “fight against corruption”. The first problem with this submission is pretty obvious- the Judiciary (which has been singled out for opprobrium under the administration which this writer ‘serves’) is a distinct and separate entity from the other arms of government. Therefore, a philosophical consensus is not only unseemly, it is directly antithetical to the well-established doctrine of separation of powers.
    Now, even if that wasn’t obvious enough, the judiciary is confronted with a situation where it is asked to deliver judgments that may be pleasing to the executive, as a measure of its commitment to the President’s battle, whilst the proponents of this dubious position conveniently ignore the fact that ththat courtroom is a different theatre from the media. There, battles are won not on sentiment or a notion of wrongdoing, but on the basis of solid, credible and incontrovertible evidence placed before the judge(s). It is for the prosecution to fall in line with existing laws and conduct thorough investigations. As a practicing lawyer myself, I have witnessed firsthand several cases where prosecution counsel appear unprepared or overwhelmed by the burden of proof.

    Again, the comment that the “courts are servants of the executive…” Is a bit misguided, to say the least. Such a conclusion becomes further befuddling when the background of the writer in law is considered. Surely, he must have gotten carried away? Whatever the case, my submissions in the preceding paragraph may serve to sufficiently debunk this most erroneous postulation.

    I would write more but I’m in court.
