The Federal High Court, Abuja, on Friday adjourned till November 10 hearing in the case filed by Olusegun Abraham, one of the aspirants of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the Ondo governorship election.

The hearing was adjourned due to failure of Mr. Abraham to serve the orders of the court on one of the defendants, Rotimi Akeredolu.

The court had asked Mr. Akeredolu to come and show cause why an interim order restraining INEC from recognising him as the candidate of APC in the forthcoming election should not be granted.


Mr. Abraham had through an ex parte motion asked the court to declare the process that produced Mr. Akeredolu as governorship candidate of APC as illegal.

This, he said, was on the grounds that it did not conform with the constitution of the party and guidelines set by the party for the primaries.

But the trial judge, Nnamdi Dimgba, had insisted that since the matter was sensitive, it would be fair if all parties to the suit were present in court before the order was made.
