A Federal High Court in Abuja has postponed judgment in a suit filed by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, asking it to remove Governor Ben Ayade from office.

The court had fixed judgment on the case before Justice Taiwo in Court 7 for Friday, 25th March 2022, but has been shifted to 6th April 2022.

Counsel to the PDP, Emmanuel Ukala, SAN, had filed the suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/975/2021 before the court seeking an order removing Governor Ben Ayade and his deputy, Ivara Esu for decamping to the All Progressives Congress, among others.

It will be recalled that Justice Taiwo had, on Monday, ordered two House of Representatives members representing Cross River and 18 lawmakers from the State’s House of Assembly to vacate their seats over their defection to APC.

The judge gave the order following a suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/971/2021 filed on August 27, 2021, by the PDP to challenge the 20 lawmakers’ defection to APC, alongside the governor on May 20, 2021.

Justice Taiwo, in the judgment, dismissed the defense argument that the PDP (plaintiff) had no locus standi (legal rights) to institute the case.
