Catholic Church vs Ekiti: Court orders retrial

The Court of Appeal sitting in Ado-Ekiti on Wednesday ordered the retrial of a suit filed by the Catholic Church against Ekiti State government over education tax imposed on pupils in both private and public schools.


The upper court set aside the judgment delivered by the Ekiti State High Court which struck out a suit filed by the Incorporated Trustees of Catholic Diocese of Ekiti against the levy.


The court refused to consider other grounds of appeal and ordered parties to go back to the lower court to argue their case on merit.
