A Federal High Court sitting in Abeokuta on Thursday threw out a suit instituted by a non-governmental group, Youths Reoriented  Initiative of Nigeria ( AYRION) against the Medical Director of Federal Medical Centre Idi-Aba Abeokuta, Prof. Adewale Musa-Olomu.

The suit by the AYRION, sought to challenge the appointment of Prof. Adewale Musa-Olomu as Medical Director of the specialist health care facility.

The trial Justice (Mrs) O.O  Oguntoyinbo in her 30 pages judgment dismissed the case with suit number FHC/ AB/ CS/ 100/21 " in its entirety" for reason of impropriety.

She further held that the Plaintiff failed to sufficiently showed any justifiable cause that the suit falls under public interest.

In short, Justice Oguntoyinbo said the plaintiff has no  _locus standi_ in instituting the suit.

She therefore awarded an N100,000.00  damages against the Plaintiff

Commenting, the lead defence counsel, Barr Kunle Kalejaiye  (SAN) lauded the judgment describing it as  a " triumph of truth over falsehood.

" You don't build something on nothing.
What happened this afternoon is to illustrate the fact that truth has caught up with falsehood"

" I am extremely  happy that God had ultimately allowed justice to prevail

" I have repeatedly said it that this administration stands for justice. The Court has spoken and we're grateful unto God  for that" Prof  Musa-Olomu remarked.

He thanked all his admirers and well wishers who stood solidly behind him while the legal battle lasted.
