A lawyer, Daniel Makolo, has made known his intention to file a case against President Mohammadu Buhari for allegedly refusing to appoint a minister to represent Kogi State at the Federal Executive Council (FEC), six months after the demise of James Ocholi (SAN).

He said that the inability of Buhari to replace Ocholi has made every decision made within the period he did not replace the decease void.

“The decisions of the federal government as discussed and ratified by the regular FEC meetings, without our (Kogi) contributions, or input from our appointed minister, in my humble opinion, is challengeable and voidable in court of competent jurisdiction,” he said.

“In view of the above, I am proceeding to the court of law to challenge this constitutional violation. To say the least, this violation is impunity by the federal government.

“It’s as if we, the people of Kogi, are not part of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
Makolo furthered that he had earlier written a letter to the president, asking him to appoint a qualified indigene of Kogi to represent the people in the FEC, the highest decision making body of the government.

He admitted that he was under compulsion to take the legal option “since the federal government appears unwilling to do the needful in the interest of justice and fairness for the people of Kogi.”
