An Abuja based legal practitioner, Chidinma Hilary Udebuani, has sued President Goodluck Jonathan, and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Chief Judge, Ibrahim Bukar, as well as three others over the appointment of five new judges for the FCT.

Daily Independent reports that the plaintiff who approached a Federal High Court in Abuja, who seeks to halt the appointment of the new appointees also included the Chairman, FCT Judicial Service Commission, the FCT Judicial Committee, the National Judicial Council (NJC) and the Chairman of the NJC in the suit as defendants.

The plaintiff in a letter attached to the suit and addressed to President Jonathan through her Counsel, Dim-Udebuani Marcel, accused Justice Bukar, the Chief Judge of the FCT of breaching the law setting up the FCT Judiciary which stipulates 37 judges excluding the Chief Judge for the FCT Judiciary, stating that there shall be a judge from each state of the Federation and the FCT.
