Supreme Court hearing

On whether Supreme Court can hear an appeal emanating from an invalid judgment

C.P.C. v. Yuguda [2013] 7 NWLR (Pt. 1354) 450 at 462, paras. B-C, per Ariwoola, JSC:

“This court already decided that, where there is no valid judgment of the court below there cannot be an appeal. Once there is no longer time for the court below to exercise jurisdiction on a matter, there cannot be competence in the Supreme Court to assume jurisdiction”.
