The Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Tanko Muhammad, has been forced to stop hearing, in the Governorship appeals before the Supreme Court.
Justice Muhammad, who resumed sitting on the appeals after rising earlier, due to congestion in the courtroom, suddenly announced a suspension of the hearing, due to the illness of one of the seven Justices.
The CJN said that the Kano matter alongside the six other Governorship appeals, will be stood down for medical attention to the unnamed Justice.
Earlier, Adegboyega Awomolo, SAN, Counsel to the PDP Governorship Candidate in Kano, Abba Kabiru-Yusuf, informed the court that he was withdrawing the preliminary objection to the Independent National Electoral Commission’s, INEC, brief of argument, to enable the Apex Court determine the matter on its merit.
