Court postpones judgment in suit seeking Ayade’s sacking for defection
A federal high court in Abuja has fixed April 6 to deliver judgment in a suit filed by the PDP against Ben Ayade, Cross River governor.
The application which was instituted by the PDP against Ayade and his deputy was fixed for judgement today, Friday, March, 25, 2022.
But on the cause list before Justice Taiwo Taiwo, a new date (6/4/2022) was written on it.
The court official, without given any reason, said the court will not be sitting on the matter today.
