Industrial Court Orders Appearance of CBN Governor Over Disobedience To Court Order

Date:

Hon. Justice Elizabeth Oji of the Lagos Judicial Division of the National Industrial Court has ordered the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria  Mr. Olayemi Cardoso to appear before the court on July 18, 2024 to show cause why  he should not be committed to prison for the show of disobedience to the order of the court made on March 25, 2019.

The Court made the order while ruling on the application filed by one Mrs Dunmoye against the CBN for refusing and failing to obey a garnishee order absolute made on March 25, 2019, and held that the conduct of the Central Bank of Nigeria is one calculated to bring the authority of law into disrespect

In a well-considered ruling, Justice Elizabeth Oji stated that there is no justification for the Central Bank of Nigeria to disrespect the court, and agreed with the Applicant’s argument that the action of the CBN portends danger for the society if the orders that emanate from judicial processes are flagrantly disobeyed.

“The respondent is ordered to appear before this court on 18th July 2024 to show cause why it should not be committed to prison through its governor Mr Olayemi Cardoso for the respondent’s act of disobedience to the order of court.

“Service of this ruling, the order absolute of 25th of March 2019 and forms 48 and 49 are to be served on the Respondent.” The Court ruled.
