Not satisfied with the injunction, the Rivers state government filed the matter before the supreme court . No date has been fixed for the hearing of the case at the apex court. He said, “Once again, in his characteristic mischievous style, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has sought to malign and attack his predecessor and erstwhile benefactor, the Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi by making false allegations. Wike said although the entire country is waiting for the final decision of the VAT suit at the apex court, the delay had allowed the federal government to keep collecting the tax.005 percent of the net profit of companies operating in Nigeria to fund the police are unconstitutional. Advertisement He said the case had enormous constitutional implications and should be addressed succinctly. “The lie in the Rivers State Government rant is so obvious. According to him, the judiciary is the ultimate guardian of the nation’s constitution and protector of rule of law, which should play out in the resolution of the VAT dispute. “There have, of course, been a good number of attempts to reform the healthcare system in Nigeria and many of us who are members-designate of this committee are familiar with some of these reform efforts, but this particular journey of reforming the Nigerian health sector began with the commissioning of a diagnostic needs assessment (DNA) of the sector,” he said.

“While the entire country is waiting for its speedy resolution in the national interest, the Supreme Court of Nigeria remains lethargic in hearing this very important matter thereby unjustifiably aiding the Federal Government to continue to enforce its illegal and oppressive VAT policy on the polity,” he said. To the Previous administration, there was no economic sense to keep and maintain two State planes. Advertisement Rivers state , through its attorney-general, had on May 20, 2020, filed a suit against the federal government’s decision to fund the NPF from the federation account. The governor said judicial independence suffered greatly when judges were subjected to summary trials and preconceived indictments by an all-powerful quasi-judicial agency on the promptings of persons or parties with vested interest in the outcome of the litigation processes. He lamented that the National Judicial Council (NJC) is becoming a willing tool to intimidate judges who are simply discharging their constitutional duties.” George added that the plane was still in Germany at the time Amaechi handed over to Wike. By doing so, he said, the NJC might be joining the league of unholy forces now assailing the independence and reputation of judicial officers across the country. Advertisement It prayed the court to declare the section of the law “permitting the direct deduction of any sum or percentage of revenue accruing to the federation account or which ought to have been paid into the federation account for the purpose of providing funds for the Nigeria Police Trust Fund” as “unconstitutional, null and void”. “My candid opinion is that the National Judicial Council must thread with utmost caution in matters of judicial complaints and discipline lest it wittingly or unwittingly turns itself into another bully to be feared rather than being respected in its roles as both the headmaster and guardian angel of the nation’s judiciary,” he added. Today, they are now saying again that the aircraft was secretly abandoned.
