A suit seeking to sack the member representing Bogoro/ Dass/Tafawa Balewa, Federal Constituency of Bauchi State, Yakubu Dogara for crossing from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress has been delayed by the vacation of the Federal High Court.
The judge in charge of the case, Justice Donatus Okorowo of an Abuja division of FHC had on March 23 fixed the judgment for today (Monday).
Dogara had, on July 24, 2020, defected from the PDP to the APC when he submitted a resignation letter to the chairman of the Bogoro ‘C’ Ward in the state.
The first suit, FHC/ABJ/CS/883/30 and filed by Incorporated Trustees of United Global Resources for Peace Organisation Vs. Rep Yakubu Dogara and five others were number one on the cause list.
However, the second suit, marked, FHC/ABJ/CS/1060/20 filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Vs. Rep Yakubu Dogara and four others, were on number five in today’s cause list.
The courtroom was, however, empty today as just the registrar and other workers were seen in their offices, NAN reports.
According to the workers, the judgment which was earlier fixed to today cannot go on as the court had begun their Easter vacation which started on April 8 and will last till April 25.
“My lord is waiting for the Chief Judge of the court will give a fiat for the judgments to be delivered during this vacation.
“But as it is now, no date has been fixed and parties will be communicated as soon as another date is fixed,” one of the court workers said.
