A flight delay has hindered the hearing case against Nasarawa west All Progressive congress candidate, Mr. Shehu Tukur.
Speaking shortly after the adjournment of the case in Lafia, the state capital, Barr. Ahmed Raji Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), lead counsel to the plaintiff, Labaran Magaji, said the judge, Justice Nehizena Afolabi, could not make it to the court due to challenges beyond her control.
MoneyCentral recalls that Barr. Labaran Magaji, an aspirant at the APC Senatorial primaries dragged the party and the alleged winner to court for irregularities during the election.
Also, Magaji, said the adjournment was not deliberate, but the will of God as the judge is human and such things are bound to happen.
The plaintiff added that he approached the court to seek justice and that justice should never be sacrificed for anything.
Magaji expressed hope that at the end of the whole deliberation, the court would do justice to the matter.
He, therefore, urged his supporters to remain calm and deliver the party in all elections at the 2023 general elections.
On his part, counsel to the first defender (Shehu Tukur, APC Senatorial candidate), Dr. Mubarak Adekilekun said the announcement was not the fault of anybody.
He said they would be in court on the next adjourned day to prove their case.
The case was adjourned to Sept. 7, 2022, for the continuation of the hearing.
