Ekweremadu: Reps Minority Caucus Hails Judgment Vacating Assets Forfeiture Order

By Paul Effiong, Abuja

The Minority Caucus of the House of Representatives has applauded the judgment of the Federal High Court, Abuja, which vacated the Court’s earlier interim assets forfeiture order on 40 properties allegedly linked to embattled former Deputy President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu.

In a strong worded statement signed by the Minority Leader in the House of Representatives, Hon Ndudi Elumelu, which was made available to newsmen in Abuja, also commended the judiciary for the courage to deliver such judgement.

According to the statement, the Caucus equally applauded the Judiciary for its courage in reinforcing the tenets of fairness while rejecting high handedness in the pursuit of justice as demonstrated in the Judgment.

He explained “as lawmakers, our Caucus further holds that the Federal High Court has, by this judgement, further strengthened the confidence and trust of the citizens in the Judiciary as the last hope of the common man, particularly in a democratic setting. “

Consequently, the Caucus strongly expressed the hope and belief that in all, justice will prevail at the end of the day in Sen. Ekweremadu’s matter.
