Court Nullifies Appointment Of Transition Committees In Kwara

A High Court in Kwara has nullified the appointment of Transition Implementation Committees (TICs) by the State Government.

The judgment followed a suit filed by the Elites Network for Sustainable Development (ENetSuD), an anti-corruption civil society organisation in Kwara.

The group challenged the “illegal appointment” of the TICs to run the affairs of all the 16 local local government areas in the state.

Justice H.A. Gegele of the Kwara State High Court in the judgment delivered on Friday described the action of the state government as executive rascality and abuse of power.

Mr Gegele, who ruled in favour of the ENetSuD, admitted that the civil organisation had locus standi to sue the state government over the matter.

He agreed that the state government suspended a democratically-elected local government council and then replaced them with an illegal TIC that is not known to any law.
