Twenty-eight lawyers move to prosecute Ubah


NO fewer than 28 lawyers have indicated interest in a proposed mobilisation by a Human rights group, Citizens Rights Watch, (CRW) to see that Chief Chris Ubah, the estranged godfather of embattled Anambra state governor Dr Chris Ngige was prosecuted.

LAGOS — NO fewer than 28 lawyers have indicated interest in a proposed mobilisation by a Human rights group, Citizens Rights Watch, (CRW) to see that Chief Chris Ubah, the estranged godfather of embattled Anambra state governor Dr Chris Ngige was prosecuted.

The group’s President, Mr. Gabriel Ojumah, told newsmen in Lagos that the CRW had written to the Attorney General of Anambra State, for his consent and FIAT, to privately prosecute Ubah.

He stated that more than 28 lawyers, led by one Chief George Opara, would be going to court to prosecute Ubah on an alleged criminal offence, immediately the Attorney General sends the FIAT, adding that if he does not, the group was ready to take up other legal methods to achieve its aim of bringing Ubah to book.

Ojumah noted that at the inception of Obasanjo’s administration, lots of promises were made and hopes were raised, which were yet to be fulfilled, adding that it was yet to be seen, any difference between the happenings in the days of the military and this day when Obasanjo is leading government under democracy.According to Ojumah, “beginning from party primaries through the elections, what we see is the use of might over merit:

what we see is brazen electoral fraud, infact, with reckless abandon: what we see is the use of positions of public trust as instruments for settlement of party loyalists and cohorts against the will of merit: what we see is the use of open sharing of federal, state and local government allocations by a few disgruntled elements .
