Responsible govt will obey court order to fix prices of goods – Ubani


Human rights lawyer, Monday Ubani, says he expects the Federal Government to obey a Lagos Federal High Court order compelling the government to fix prices of goods and petroleum products within seven days.

Ubani, previously serving as Chairman of the Section of Public Interest and Development Law (SPIDEL) of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), made these remarks during an appearance on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily program on Thursday.

He emphasized that government regulation of commodity prices is a necessary measure.

The lawyer said, “The government must (fix prices of goods). The court has now ordered within seven days. A government that is interested in making sure that the lives of people are better will intervene in this particular process and obey the court judgement and say let’s now begin to fix prices on items and that is the best thing for them to do.

“And I think that a government that loves Nigeria would do that. I don’t hope that they will go and appeal this particular judgement.”
