RATIO DECIDENDI
1. APPEAL - GROUND(S) OF APPEAL: Whether ground(s) of appeal as well as issue(s) formulated
therefrom must arise from the decision appealed against and effect of failure thereof

"...The above ground of appeal does not arise from the judgment of the trial Court delivered on the 4th
day of May, 2017 which the appellant has appealed against. The law is settled and it is that a ground of
appeal must arise and have its roots from the decision or judgment appealed against. See Ogbe v. Asade
