Written by on September 4, 2020

JUSTICE TAIWO TAIWO HAS RECUSED HIMSELF FROM A SUIT CHALLENGING THE QUALIFICATION OF OSAGIE IZE-IYAMU AS THE GOVERNORSHIP CANDIDATE OF THE ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS (APC) IN THE SEPT. 19 GOVERNORSHIP ELECTION IN EDO STATE.

MR TAIWO, A JUDGE OF THE FEDERAL HIGH COURT, ABUJA, WITHDREW FROM THE CASE ON THURSDAY FOLLOWING A PETITION FILED AGAINST HIM BY ONE OF THE LAWYERS IN THE APC LEGAL TEAM.

THE JUDGE DECRIED THE ATTEMPT BY THE LAWYER TO CALL HIS INTEGRITY TO QUESTION AND MALICIOUSLY TARNISH HIS IMAGE.

ACCORDING TO THE JUDGE, IT IS NOT ONLY CORONAVIRUS THAT HAS BECOME A PANDEMIC, THE SPATE AT WHICH POLITICIANS WRITE PETITIONS AGAINST JUDGES SHOULD BE DECLARED A PANDEMIC AND SHOULD BE CHECKED.

HE SAID IT WAS UNFORTUNATE THAT JUDGES COULD NOT RESPOND TO PETITIONS AGAINST THEM THROUGH THE MEDIA.

HE, HOWEVER, MAINTAINED THAT HE HAD NO AFFILIATION, PERSONAL OR POLITICAL WITH ANY OF THE PARTIES IN THE CASE.
