Abuja - The President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, has constituted a fresh panel to hear the appeals emanating from the disputes over the governorship ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party in the Ondo State gubernatorial election.
The new panel was constituted following the decision of the earlier panel disqualifying itself from further presiding over the cases.
News 24 recalls that members of the earlier panel withdrew from the cases on Tuesday after a petition by one of the respondents, Biyi Poroye claiming that one of the Justices, Justice Sankey has been biased and likely to be compromised.
The three-member pane according to Daily Postl has Justice Ibrahim Saulawa (Acting Presiding Justice of the Calabar division of the court) as the head.
Other members are Justices Ignatius Igwe Agube and Ita Godwin Mbaba (both of the Owerri division).
