Case adjournment

Particulars of Ground of Appeal must not be set out separately.

Ministry for Works v. Tomas (Nig.) Ltd [2002] 2 NWLR (Pt. 752) 740 at 783, para G, per Musdapher, JCA:

“It is contended that grounds of appeal filed by the appellants are incompetent in that the first ground of appeal is deficient in the nature of the error and its particulars. I have myself examined the ground of appeal, the nature and particulars of the ground are embedded in the ground of appeal. There is no legal requirements that the particulars must be set out separately…”

Blogger’s Note:

You can read the full Judgment here.

While I consider the above decision as a good one because there is indeed no legal requirements that the particulars must be set out separately, it is pertinent to note that setting out the particulars separately and aptly makes for a good notice of appeal. This would also guide counsel in preparing the brief of arguments concisely and coherently.
