"I am in total agreement with the submission of learned senior counsel for the appellant that these statutes which I mentioned a while ago do not confer jurisdiction on the trial court to sit on appeal over its judgement entered on the merits since a judgement entered in favour of the Plaintiff on the undefended list is a judgement on the merit and can be overturned only on appealSee: First Bank (Nig.) Ltd v. Khaladu (1993) 9 NWLR (Pt. 315) 44 at 56".
