Barrister Kayode Ajulo asks Court to Pronounce Goodluck V.P based on Yar’Adua Phone Call

Mr. Kayode Ajulo has filed a suit at the Federal High Court to declare that the telephone call to the British Broadcasting Corporation of Tuesday 12 January, 2010 by President Umaru Yar’Adua constituted a declaration under Section 145 of the 1999 Constitution to the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

In the suit filed last Friday, the lawyer is asking the court to declare that Vice President Goodluck Jonathan has become the Acting-President (and not a Vice President acting on behalf of Yaradua) and therefore should be discharging the functions of the office of the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federation pending the time the President would transmit another written declaration to the contrary.

The reality of this current case is that it creates bigger troubles for presidency cabal over their refusal to allow the letters of the constitution to be followed in this case of the Yaradua sickness as Kayode Ajulo turns their telephone gimick against them: (1) Yaradua’s BBC phone call is proof that he is ill. (2) His BBC phone admittance that VP Jonathan is performing his duty is evidence of activation of Section 145 of the 1999 Constitution. (3) His acknowlegement that only his doctors can determine his movement is proof he is incapacitated and cannot function.

    If the telephone conversation was indeed a gimmick, then Yar’adua and his cohorts just made a bad case, worse (the BBC too must be crucified for being a unwilling accomplice). I must admit that it’s too early to rejoice now that Mr. Kayode Ajulo has approached the courts, with the likes of Justice Daniel Abutu still running things at the bench, can we be assured of an unambiguous judgment or a clear interpretation?

    It still puzzles my mind that if Yar’adua is truly as healthy as they are making us to believe, why is it so difficult for him to write a letter to the National Assembly informing them of his situation and that his VP should start acting fully pending his return. At this junction I must submit that they have lost the plot.

    Nigerians are beginning to take their destiny in their hands, they must be commended and I am fully persuaded that this mad drama will reach a logical end SOONER rather than later.
    Long Live the Federal republic of Nigeria.

    This is like a case of the tortoise that thought he had all wisdom in the world. By admitting that he is too ill ti discharge his duties, Yaradua has confirmed that the constitutional provision can now be activated. If the FEC refused to do that, take them to a Lagos court because I don’t trust this Abuja courts.

    This is a very funny scenario and it goes to show that he who laughs last, laughs best. Just when those clowns tot they had everything under control, they obviously did not envisage someone being smarter than they are… I love my country and her endless drama.
