According to the Director, Legal services of the Ministry of Youth and Sports Barrister Mohamed Danjuma ,an appeal with the suit number CA/ ABJ/ CV/ 518/ 2020 has been properly entered at the Court of Appeal in the above named matter.

The Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development and three others are the Appellants and Ibrahim Gusau is the Respondent.

“The time to file our brief of arguments has started running from the 8th of July, 2020 when record was transmitted to the Court of Appeal from the Federal High Court and the Respondent has been served. The Appellants are already set to file their briefs so that the matter can be given accelerated hearing by the Court of Appeal,” Danjuma said
