The Court of Appeal sitting in Benin City, Edo State, has adjourned indefinitely to prepare for judgement on the suit brought before it by Hon Momoh Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) praying the court to upturn the judgement of Edo State Election Petitions Tribunal which upheld the victory of Senator Francis Alimikhena of the APC in the February election in Edo North Senatorial District.
The appellate court after taking briefs from cousels to the parties in the suit challenging the tribunal’s judgement, declared indefinite adjournment with the parting word that the court would notify all parties through their counsels when it decides the date for judgement.
Counsel to the Momoh Abubakar, G.C. Igbokwe SAN, had argued in his brief that the tribunal was wrong in affirming the election of Francis Alimikhena Inspite of overwhelming evidence -documentary and Oral evidence – tendered before the tribunal.
