A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has declined to grant an interim order sought by the suspended General Secretary, Mrs. Joyce Oduah to reinstate her in her position.

Instead, the court presided over by Justice A. R. Mohammed, sitting as a vacation judge ordered the plaintiff to put the defendant/respondents on notice and adjourned the suit to 23 August, 2022 for hearing.

Counsel to Oduah and former Chief of Staff to NBA President, Mr. Murtala Abdul-Rasheed (SAN), confirmed the ruling to CITY LAWYER, saying: “The court has directed that we put the respondents on notice and come back on Tuesday.”

Oduah had in a lawsuit sought to restrain the newly appointed NBA Ag. General Secretary, Ms. Uche Nwadialo from performing the duties of the General Secretary. She also sought an order to restrain the NBA from acting or relying on the Resolution reached by the National Executive Committee as well as an order directing the Inspector General of Police to assist her in the discharge of her duties as General Secretary.

CITY LAWYER recalls that the National Executive Council Meeting of the association holds on Sunday. The National Officers had resolved to ask the meeting to impeach Oduah as General Secretary for sundry misconduct. Oduah denies the allegations, saying that her actions were in line with the NBA Constitution.

More details soon.
