Judge withdraws from suit seeking disqualification of Ize-Iyamu

Osagie Ize-Iyamu emerges Edo APC governorship candidate

Justice Taiwo Taiwo has recused himself from a suit challenging the qualification of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Justice Taiwo, a judge of the Federal High Court, Abuja, withdrew from the case on Thursday following a petition against him by one of the lawyers in the APC legal team.

The judge decried the attempt by a lawyer to call his integrity to question and maliciously tarnish his image.

He said: “As judges and lawyers in the temple of justice, it is our duty to protect the integrity of the court and that of the judiciary.

“It is disturbing to receive a petition from a party in the suit seeking the transfer of the case; the contents of the said petition are wicked and unsubstantiated.

“It is very disturbing that a counsel will write this petition and even back it with an affidavit.”
