The complainants also sought the legal interpretation of some sections of the NUJ Constitution in relation to the complaints as contained in their claims before the Court.

 

Counsel to the defendants, Barr. Rilwanu Jibrin argued that the State High Court lacked the jurisdiction to entertain the case noting that only the National Industrial Court is the appropriate court to entertain the issue being a labour-related issue.

 

While delivering the judgement on the arguments before him, Justice Muktar Abubakar affirmed the submissions of the defendants that indeed, the High Court lacks jurisdiction to entertain the matter.
