OUSTER CLAUSE – EFFECT OF THE OUSTER CLAUSE IN SECTION 18(1) OF THE RECOVERY OF PUBLIC FUNDS AND PROPERTY (SPECIAL PROVISIONS) EDICT NO. 7 OF 1985
“The ouster clause clearly spelt out in Section 18 (1) of the Edict forecloses any court delving into the rightness or otherwise of acts done under the said Edict, This is because what has now become trite occurred and that is that the Court was not competent to entertain the suit because there were features in it which had divested the Court of the requisite Jurisdiction. I rely on Madukolu v Nkemdilim (1962) 1 A NLR (pt. 4) 587 at 595”.
