Innoson/GTB: Court dismisses objection by Innoson, asks GTB to amend brief
The Court of Appeal, Enugu on Friday evening dismissed the preliminary objections brought before it by the Chairman of Innoson Motors, Chief Innocent Chukwuma and his company, Innoson Motors Ltd.
Innoson arguing through his counsel, Prof. McCarthy Mbadugha had at the last hearing of the matter on June 14, 2018 raised objections to a motion brought before the court by GTBank seeking to amend its notice of appeal before the court.
The court held on Friday that it would be in serious error if it decides to wait and hear Innoson Motors’ preliminary objection.
“There is no doubt that the application for amendment of the notice of appeal will, if successful, give the appeal a chance of being considered and disposed-of on the merit rather than on technicalities.
It is implicit in the constitutional rights of fair hearing that parties in a case be accorded every reasonable opportunity of being heard, and that extends to the right to amend their processes and place before the court all the issues they may wish to canvass to enable the court reach a fair and just conclusion,” the court said.
