ECOWAS Fixes Date To Consolidate Suits Against Buhari Over Twitter Ban

 The Community Court of the Economic Community of West African States has fixed July 9, 2021, to decide on the consolidation of all applications before the court on the Twitter ban by the Nigerian government.

The ECOWAS Court stated this in a virtual court sitting held via zoom on Tuesday.

On the cause list for the day, were two applications against the Nigerian Government over the Twitter ban.

One was the applications brought by the Registered Trustees of the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project against the Federal Government marked ECW/CCJ/APP/23/21.

The other was the application brought by the Media Rights Agenda and eight others against the Federal Government on the same issue marked ECW/CCJ/APP/29/21.

The lawyer representing the Federal Government, Abdullahi Abubakar, informed the court that he had a motion to consolidate all the four applications before the court on the Twitter ban issue.

In his motion on notice dated July, 5, 2021, Abubakar prayed for the leave of the court to consolidate the hearing of the applications pending before the court and other orders that the court may deem fit in the circumstance.

The Counsel for SERAP, Femi Falana (SAN) , did not object to the application.

Falana stated that the application to consolidate will “afford the court the opportunity to give one judgment in the matters that were similar in nature and character”.

The Counsel for Media Rights Agenda, Mojirayo Ogunlaya, also did not object the application for consolidation.

The ECOWAS Court stated that the parties of the other two cases, which were marked as ECW/CCJ/APP/24/21 and ECW/CCJ/APP/26/21, and sought to be consolidated were not in court.

Consequently, the court noted that it cannot make a consolidation order in their absence and without hearing from them.
