The People’s Redemption Party (PRP) has instituted an action against the Federal Government and Kaduna State Government challenging the cruel handling of the COVID19 pandemic by the Nigerian Government as the pandemic rages on throughout the globe.
PRP National Chairman, Malam Falalu Bello, (Dan Masanin Zazzau) yesterday Monday, 22nd June, 2020 announced that the party had briefed lawyers to sue the Federal Government along with the Kaduna State Government.
In a statement signed by PRP National Chairman Malam Falalu Bello, which reads in part:
“Morning Ladies and Gentlemen, “You may please recall that in our last Press Release on Covid-19, we have said that we were going to sue the Government to test whether a Government can use the Quarantine Laws to lock people up day and night (which is practically imprisonment) without feeding them as the Federal and most State Governments did.
“I, on behalf of the Party briefed Barr. Jibril Dogo who has so far represented the Party on Kaduna matter (at first hearing and appeal) to file the Suit against the Federal and Kaduna State Governments as Defendants. The choice of Federal Government was because it locked up some States and the FCT and Kaduna State locked up Kaduna continuously for 2 months at great pain to the citizens.
“The Suit filled in the Federal High Court Abuja has been assigned to Court 11 and will come up next Friday 26th June, 2020”. Falalu Bello OON said.
