APPEAL – GROUND(S) OF APPEAL – Whether ground(s) of appeal must arise from the judgment appealed against; effect of failure


“A good and competent ground of appeal must constitute a complaint against the decision appealed, and not a mischievous contraption of the figment out of the mind of either the appellant or his counsel. Ground 5, not directed against any point or issue on which the decision predicates, is at large and mischievously misleading. The ground is incompetent.” Per EJEMBI EKO, JSC in ADALMA TANKERS BUNKERING SERVICES LTD & ANOR v. CBN & ORS (2022-LCER-46528-SC) (Pp 85 – 85; Paras D – F)
