Coram
NICHOLAS M. C. ABODAKPI

Judgement

This Court heard Counsel for Applicant on his prayer for leave to file judicial review application out of time, as Applicant did not seek legal advice in time.

REPLY: We do not have an affidavit in opposition.

BY COURT: RULING

This Court has heard Counsel for the Applicant and perused the motion and the facts stated in support. The main reason for not acting within the time prescribed by the rule is that Applicant did not seek legal advice timeously.

I am of the view that this is not good enough reason to attract a favourable exercise of this Court’s discretion, the motion is dismissed. No cost awarded.
