The Special Panel of the Court of Appeal, Abuja, established to determine all appeals arising from the ongoing PDP leadership disputes has again adjourned its proceedings indefinitely.

The Chairman of the panel, Justice Ibrahim Salaawu at the resumption of the day’s proceeding announced the information to the parties.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the panel had on Nov.18 adjourned indefinitely awaiting decision of the Court of Appeal, Port Harcourt Division on the sister appeal.

The Judge also held that the court’s decision hinged on a notice of motion for stay from the Supreme Court served on it by the Ali Modu Sheriff faction of the PDP.
