By Tunde Oguntola, Abuja –
A public interest lawyer, Barr Pelumi Olajengbesi, has described the invitation of Senator Isah Misau by the Police Service Commission (PSC), as unconstitutional and a mockery of logic.
The legal practitioner in a statement made available to LEADERSHIP, yesterday, stressed that it has become crucial as a patriotic public interest lawyer to enlighten the Nigeria Police Service Commission on some crucial points of law as it has evidently misconstrued its purpose and authority by law in the ongoing melodrama between Senator Misau and the Nigeria Police.
“Just last week, we all woke up to the news that the Police Service Commission had invited Senator Misau for appearance before it on September 6, 2017 for investigation and clarification over the allegation by the Police Force of the forgery of his resignation letter from its employ,” he said.
Barr Olajengbesi said by the context and content of that summon, the commission turns logic on its head.
He added that the invitation and its purpose is a show of ignorance and an admission of administrative ineptitude.
He said it was unfortunate that the legitimate custodians of a document, where same emanates, would call on an outsider to produce his copy of same ostensibly to prove its authenticity rather than go through their records to ascertain the validity or otherwise of the document.
“If same ever existed or emanated from them. The Police Service Commission could have simply said we have or we do not have Senator Misau ‘s letter of resignation.
“Is this then a case of an improper record system? Could this be an admission by the Police Commission that even they cannot be relied upon for information about serving and retired employees? While these questions beg for answers, the Commission and the Nigeria Police continue their public dance of shame unabashed,” he said.
He said that it is his intention to espouse the position of the law as opposed to lay views on the legitimacy or otherwise of the invitation of Senator Misau by the Police Service Commission.
