On our Saturday breakfast show Sunrise; taking a look at the judicial arm of government and issues surrounding it, the anchors Kayode Akintemi had a lawyer Tayo Olatunbosun and Debo Adeniran; a campaigner against corruption and corrupt leaders to look at the National Judicial Council which stands as an advisory board to the executive, on the Justice Salami saga.
However, the suspension of the president of the court of appeal; Justice Ayo Salami was what caught Kayode Akintemi’s fancy.
Justice Salami was suspended by the executive after a petition was written against him.
Reasons for that? Could it be Indiscipline or corruption? It was stated that he mishandled an election petition which amounted to misdemeanour. During his suspension, investigation was carried out and it was concluded that Salami had done nothing and this was after Salami was already suspended due to an earlier recommendation by the National Judicial Council.
A new recommendation was reported to the Executive by a new set of panel made out of the NJC so as to rescind the suspension of justice Salami which is yet to be put aright by the executive.
