The paper presents the attitude of the Courts to impeachment cases as ""old wine in new bottles"" as what is new to the legal scenery is the challenge posed in between procedural breaches vs, ouster clauses. The paper argues that the courts reacted satisfactorily by a liberal, progressive and purposeful interpretation of the Constitution and concludes that the consequence has been increased confidence of Nigeria in the judiciary.
