Court of Appeal President Should Resign

 Published February 15th, 2011

The recent revelation by the president of the Court of Appeal, Justice Ayo Salami that the Chief Judge of the Federation, Justice Aloysius Katsina-Alu asked him to compromise the Sokoto State gubernatorial appeal is a huge dent on the judiciary. Irrespective of the truth surrounding the heavy allegation against the head of the nationís judicial arm of government, the most honourable option left for Justice Ayo Salami is to resign his position as president of the Court of Appeal. This is so because; he has overtly proved that he would be ready to hide filth as long as his personal interests were protected.

From all the information volunteered by Justice Salami, he would not have spilled the beans if he had not been recommended for elevation to the Supreme Court. Definitely, persons with poor judicial spirit are threats to democracy and the wider society and should therefore be asked to leave the scene for cleaner hearts.

Attempts by Justice Ayo Salami to win the sympathy of the public should be ignored. The appropriate time to raise alarm is immediately an attempt is made to bend the back of justice. Nigerians should join voices to compel Salami to resign immediately. He has stained the white heart of justice with the blood of personal interest.

Nevertheless, the allegations thrown at Chief Justice Katsina-Alu must never be swept under the carpet. The CJN should be given the opportunity to clear his name. Let him face appropriate sanctions if found culpable. This will be in the interest of democracy and peace in the country.
