This edition of Law Weekly features reactions which trailed the comments by the Senate that it would not read the letter by some lawmakers seeking to defect to the opposition party, on the floor of the house. The Senate spokesperson, Senator Eyinanya Abaribe had cited legal constraints for this action.

We also feature perspectives of some senior legal practitioners on the issues.

The lawyers also reacted to the declaration by the Central Bank Governor that the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC was yet to remit to the Federation Account $20bn dollars out of the $67bn dollars it realised from crude oil sale on behalf of the Federal Government.

Furthermore, Plateau State has a new acting chief judge following the retirement of former Chief Judge, Justice Lazarus Dakyen.

At a valedictory court session held for the retiring CJ, in Jos, Justice Dakyen made a call for the judiciary to be repositioned with the provision of modern technology& professional aides for judges to enable them become independent and function properly to meet the yearnings of citizens.
