ISSUE(S):   WHAT CONSTITUTES A VAGUE GROUND OF APPEAL?

CASE SYNTHESIS

A vague ground of appeal is that which is imprecise, not cogent, not concise. It is inaccurate, verbose, large, rigmarole, vague, which is capable of making the appeal court or the respondent to the appeal not to understand what it exactly connotes. Although Order 8 Rule 2(3) and (4) of the Supreme Court Rules, require a ground of appeal  to be precise and accurate, that  does not  mean that  any slight  non-compliance thereof shall render the ground incompetent.
