APPEAL – GROUND(S) OF APPEAL – Whether leave of court is required to file and argue a ground of law


“Grounds 2 and 3 question the competence of the grounds of Appeal. Without a doubt, they are grounds of law. These grounds are competent without leave. See Section 241 (1} (b) of the Constitution. The Court below had jurisdiction to hear and determine the Appeal.” Per RHODES-VIVOUR, J.S.C. in FRANCIS IKENE ITOK v. OBONG FRIDAY THOMPSON UDOYO (2020- LCER-39166-SC) at p.13
