President Goodluck Jonathan, yesterday, challenged the jurisdiction of the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court to entertain a suit seeking to reverse the suspension of governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.

In a preliminary objection filed against the suit, Jonathan insisted that the ousted CBN governor ought to have taken his case to the National Industrial Court, NIC, contending that in line with section 254 (c) (1a) of the 1999 Constitution as amended, only the industrial court had the statutory powers to meddle into any dispute between an employer and his employee.

Similarly, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Bello Adoke, SAN, and the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, who were both joined in the suit by Sanusi as 2nd and 3rd defendants, respectively, urged the high court to strike it out for want of jurisdiction.
