Alleged Certificate Forgery: Gov Mbah prays court to dismiss NYSC’s objection to his N20bn suit
Governor Peter Mbah of Enugu State has prayed a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja to dismiss the preliminary objection filed by the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) against his N20 billion suit over alleged certificate forgery.
Mbah’s counsel, Christopher Oshomegie, SAN, urged Justice Inyang Ekwo on Tuesday to dismiss the objection on the grounds that sections cited in the NYSC Act were not applicable in the instant suit.
According to him, a counteraffidavit and a written address had been filed in response to the preliminary objection.
He said, “We adopt our written address as our oral argument to the preliminary objection in urging my Lord to dismiss their application.
Earlier, Aminu Sadauki, counsel for the NYSC, told the court that the matter was fixed for Tuesday for the hearing of their objection.
Sadauki, who adopted the objection, argued that Mbah contravened the NYSC Act in the institution of the suit.
However, NAN reports that Justice Ekwo eventually adjourned the matter until September 22 for the ruling.
