The Judiciary in Cross River State has been rendered moribund, unnavigable and demented by the brazen rascality of executive and legislative principalities.
The Judiciary is the hope of the common man, and an arm of Government well engraved and enshrined in our grundnorm.
The executive cum legislative influenced & orchestrated vacancy or vacuum in the office of Chief Judge of Cross River State, is regrettable, deplorable, tactĺess, unfortunate and shameful.
Citizens are imbued with the constitutional right to approach the Law Courts to ventilate their grievance and seek legal redress or remedy, and where as in the present happenstance, citizens cannot approach the courts and have their matters assigned to a Court so it can be heard, then the Constitution is being denigrated and trampled upon.
I Charge the Executive Governor of Cross River State, and his legislative cohorts to do the needful and save Cross River and Cross Riverians this colossal embarrassment.
Cross River State has been without a Chief Judge for almost 6 weeks. That vacuum must be filled and must be filled now.
