Open Letter To Festus Keyamo SAN By Steve Sun
Greetings, dear learned silk.
I take great pride in the knowledge that what seemed like a crazy idea when i first mooted same (of course great ideas usually seem crazy at first) is eventually being taken seriously, not least by someone like you.
My hunch however is that your brother silk Malami, will be retained as AGF for obvious reasons (PMB’s antecedents have shown quite unfortunately that he doesn’t trust non-core-northerners with sensitive posts).
But if perchance you become the next AGF, i would love to collaborate with you in actualizing the idea of having 6 regional Supreme Courts.
As a matter of fact, I already have a mental picture of the perfect spot for that of the South East, which would be best situated right opposite the Enugu Judicial Division of the Court of Appeal (beside the National Industrial Court).
A little area of divergence between my proposal and yours is that whereas you are of the view that the Supreme Court HQ, Abuja, should be concerned solely with Election Petitions appeals, i on my part am of the humble opinion that they should also handle appeals from all divisions of the Court of Appeal for matters (both civil and criminal) which originated from the respective Divisions of the FHC.
For more insight, may i humbly refer you to my post on the subject, of 11th January 2018 on the “NIGERIAN BAR ASSOCIATION MEMBERS” Facebook page, as well as the following blog post: http://www.barristerng.com/innovative-proposals-lets-have-regional-supreme-courts-by-steve-sun/
Good luck to you as you await your portfolio.
Thanks for your time.
