Court strikes out marginalisation suit by South-East on appointment Court of Appeal justices.

The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has struck out a suit challenging the alleged marginalisation of South-East judges in the appointment of justices of the Court of Appeal.
Justice Inyang Ekwo made the order while ruling on the notice of preliminary objection raised by the defendants in the suit by the South-East Cultural group, Alaigbo Foundation, against the National Judicial Council.
Justice Ekwo stated that the foundation lacked the requisite locus standi to institute the action.
The judge also stated that the group cannot register as a foundation and then parade itself as an Igbo pan-cultural group.
