Appeal Court adjourns hearing on PDP leadership crisis

02 December 2016, 13:42

Abuja - The Abuja Division of the Appeal Court has adjourned its hearing in the ongoing leadership tussle within Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The court gave the ruling following an application by counsel to former governor Ali Sheriff faction of the party, Akin Olujimi.

Olujimi according to Premium Times had requested an adjournment by the court to allow the Port Harcourt Division of the appellate court conclude on a similar application.

Olujimi based his request on the fact that the Port Harcourt Division of the Court has already concluded hearing on the same subject matter and reserved its judgment, reports Vanguard.

The counsel representing the Ahmed Makarfi faction, Emmanuel Ukala, opposed the application.

After listening to the arguments of both parties, the three member panel of justices led by Ibrahim Salauwa fixed December 15 for ruling on the motion filed by Olujimi.
