The hearing could not go ahead as scheduled because the tribunal found that some of the respondents mainly the PDP and Wike were yet to file their replies to the application for pre-hearing session as demanded by law.
Counsel to the PDP, Goddy Uche informed the tribunal that they needed time to file their responses.
Consequently, the tribunal headed by Justice Muazu Pindiga was compelled to adjourn further hearing till another day.
