JUSTICE SALAMI REMAIN SUSPENDED UNTIL...-ADOKE

The minister for Justice and Attorney General of the federation in Nigeria,Mr. Muhammed Adoke have reacted to the protracted delay in reinstating Justice Salami as President Court of Appeal.
Justice Salami was suspended from the exalted position last year following recommedations from the National Judicial Council that he violated certain norms of the legal profession following his public outrage with former Chief Justice of the federation,Justice Alu. He has been recalled by the same NJC that suspended him. The only thing remaing is for President Goodluck Jonathan to sign the recommendation.
However, Adoke speaking on behalf of the president at a ministerial press briefing said, Salami will not get his position back until a case pending in court is determined. Adoke noted that the a case was instituted against his recall by a group the same day NJC recommend his recall to Jonathan.
But Nigerians within and in diaspora refused to agree with the federal government,insisting that the same government refused to respect the rule of law when Salami went to court to stop his removal from office.
