POLITICS: Lawyer To Drag Buhari To Court For Dropping General Title From Name

Lagos lawyer, Ebun-Olu Adegoruwa has threatened to drag president-elect, Muhammadu Buhari to court, for asking Nigerians to stop calling him “General” from May 29. A statement by his Media Director, Mallam Garba Shehu, had stated that: “From May 29, 2015, the President-elect and Vice-President-elect are to be respectively known and addressed as Muhammadu Buhari, President, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Federal Republic of Nigeria and Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, Vice President, Federal Republic of Nigeria”.

Reacting, the lawyer described the statement as shocking and unacceptable.

He argues that by virtue of Buhari’s membership of the Nigerian Army, he became Head of State, and earned salaries and benefits even when he contested elections in 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2015.

Adegboruwa warned that should Buhari ignore his appeal, by insisting on denying his past, whilst he continues to earn salaries and benefits through the same rank that he seeks to jettison, “I shall file a suit before the Federal High Court, to seek an injunction to restrain the President-elect from denying his official and legal titles, or alternatively, to give up, pay back and restore, all the pensions, salaries and benefits that he has so far earned, either as a commissioned officer of the Nigerian Army, or as a former military Head of State.”

@jesse: you think the lawyer is sane? i wonder the rationale behind his move. we are living in a historic & dynamic world. he should have check his history book before coming to air his opinion or 'suit'.

What has that got to do with the constitution.........Lawyers though

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

Endy, lawyers are frivolous in nature. They can come up with anything. I get what he's saying but it doesn't make much sense. The man is asking not to be called General but that doesn't mean he ceases to be one. I can say stop calling me Jesse but still its who I am. Eish.
