APPEAL – Issues for determination – Effect of Issue(s) for determination not connected or related to ground(s) of appeal


It is highly lamentable and regrettable that the Appellant has to suffer this setback in his appeal because of the incompetence and quackery of his legal practitioner, who could not marry or harmonize the issue for determination with the grounds of appeal. Observably, the lone issue of the Appellant cannot be linked or correlated to any of the 3 grounds of appeal. They are not at par at all but irreconcilably incongruous. Any issue which is not connected or related to the grounds of appeal is irrelevant, go to no issue and the arguments thereon should be discountenanced by this Court.Per UWANI MUSA ABBA AJI, JSC in AKEEM ABIODUN V. THE STATE (2022-LCER-46641-SC) at P. 21; Paras. B-F.
