By Taofik Afonkara
The Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) arm of the Lagos High Court has summoned Mr Tunji Ogunwusi, an elder brother to the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi.The court took the decision on Wednesday when the case between some Lagos journalists and Primewaterview Holdings came up for hearing at the Lagos Multidoor ADR, Igbosere-Lagos with the mediator, Mrs. Dupe Ogunsanwo urging interested parties to appear at the next sitting in their own interest in order to find an amicable resolution to the case.
Out of the six defendants, only the NUJ was present while the duo of Ify Omowole and Deji Elumoye were represented by Barrister Yinka Kalejaye with no one from Primewaterviews Holdings of Tunji Ogunwusi, under whose chairmanship, the project began.
When Mrs Ogunsanwo advised that the presence of the key individuals involved is very important, Kalejaye said that his clients could not appear in person because they are working in Abuja.
Mrs Ogunsanwo strongly advised that it will be in their own interest to appear in person on March 13th, 2019.
The lawyer to Primewaters Holdings who chose the date for yesterday’s hearing did not show up.
The parties present later agreed on March 13th, 2019 at noon for the next hearing.
Meanwhile, following the National Executive Council (NEC) of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ’s directive at its inaugural meeting held in Abuja recently, the Lagos State Council of NUJ has started the reallocation of plots of land to its members.
Speaking on behalf of other allottees, Alhaji Sulaiman Ajayi of Lagos Ministry of Information commended the Akinreti-led executive for taking the giant stride of letting people have access to their lands, saying, “It is a big relief and a major step forward.”
