Justice Gabriel Kolawole of the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Wednesday
declined an ex-parte application filed by the suspended Governor of the
Central Bank of Nigeria(CBN), Lamido Sanusi.

Sanusi had in the application, sought to reverse his suspension by
President Goodluck Jonathan, pending the determination of an
interlocutory motion he filed along with a suit he initiated,
challenging the suspension.He had accompanied the ex-parte application
with documents, including a letter dated February 19, 2014, addressed to
the plaintiff by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation,
titled:”Suspension from office.”
Shortly after the applicant’s lawyer, Sam Kagbo, informed the court
about the application, Justice Kolawole said he felt hesitant and
constrained to grant the reliefs sought. He ordered that the respondents
be put on notice.
On plaintiff’s apprehension that a delay would occasion harm to his
interest, the judge noted that the court possesses the powers to declare
the suspension unlawful and order his return to office, if at the end
of trial, it finds that the suspension was wrong.
He added that even where the tenure had lapsed, the court could order
the defendants to pay the plaintiff such remunerations and allowances,
if his remuneration and allowances were also suspended while his
suspension lasted.
The judge held that it was unsafe, at the current preliminary stage of
the case, for the court to embark on granting far-reaching interim
orders which have all the attributes of a mandatory injunction without
hearing from the defendants.
Justice Kolawole noted that, when defendants have been duly served with
the originating summons and motion on notice, he intends to inquire
whether, in the light of the Third Alteration Act, No: 20 of the
Constitution, the Federal High Court has the jurisdiction to hear the
case, irrespective of the questions for determination contained in the
originating summons.
He consequently adjourned to March 12 for hearing.In a suit filed on
Monday, Sanusi wants the court to among others, restrain the President
and two others from giving effect to his purported suspension pending
the determinationof his suit.Also to be restrained are the Attorney
General of the Federation (AGF) and the Inspector General of Police
(IGP).
