A group, the Union of Niger Delta Youth Organisation for Equity, had on behalf of itself and Patience sued SERAP for allegedly championing a campaign of calumny against Patience.

But Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, has described the suit filed against it by wife of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Patience, as grossly incompetent and urged a Federal High Court in Lagos to dismiss it.

“Since the process of court has not been used bona fide and properly it is unnecessary to consider whether or not there is a genuine case on the merits

“An abuse of court process is not the species of sins called an irregularity. It is a much more fundamental vice which is deserving of the punishment of dismissal.

“The suit as constituted discloses no reasonable cause of action against SERAP and as such cannot be maintained.

“Mrs. Jonathan and her group cannot and have not articulated what legal wrong SERAP has done or what legal dispute they have with SERAP. They have not shown that the matter is justiciable and that a dispute exists between them and SERAP. Mrs. Jonathan’s case against SERAP is therefore a flagrant abuse of court process and as such must be dismissed.”
