Supreme Court postpones seven governorship judgments over Justice’s illness



The Supreme Court on Monday postponed by one day the judgments in the governorship disputes in seven states due to the illness of one.of the Justices on the panel.

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, had initially adjourned and retired to his chambers owing to the congestion in the courtroom.

After resuming, the court announced that the absence of one of the Justices meant it would postpone the judgments to Tuesday.

The judgments are for Kano, Sokoto, Bauchi, Adamawa, Imo, Benue and Plateau states.

The apex court had earlier suspended the appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party’s governorship candidate in the 2019 election, Kabiru Yusuf.
