CONSEQUENCE OF FAILURE OF COURT TO DISPENSE WITH ALL PENDING APPLICATIONS OR PROCESSES BEFORE IT
"It is not in dispute and indeed the law is very well settled that a Court of law has a duty to dispense with all pending applications and/or processes before it, before reaching a final decision in a cause or matter. Certainly the failure of a Court to do so, without a valid reason would amount to a violation of the right of the party not heard to fair hearing and such violation would render the proceedings liable to be struck out. See Per Kekere-Ekun, JSC in PDP & Ors V. Ezeonwuka & Anor (2017) LPELR-42563(SC)."
