For the second time, the Court of Appeal in Abuja failed to deliver judgment in an appeal filed by a governorship aspirant in Kogi State, Jibrin Isah challenging the decision of a Federal High Court Abuja which refused his claim to be declared the People Democratic Party's (PDP) candidate for the state.
When the matter was called Wednesday, the justices who sat said that they did not participate in the hearing of the appeal and that they could not deliver the judgment.
The court said it would communicate a new date when the judgment would be delivered to the lawyers.
Justice Abdul Kafarati of the Federal High Court, had in a judgment in the suit dismissed Isah's suit on the ground that it was a post election matter and same should have been directed to the state governorship election petition tribunal.
The trial judge also said that Isah's did not have locus standi to institute the suit in the first instance.
Dissatisfied with the court's decision, Isah had through his counsel, Chief Wole Olanipekun SAN approached the appeal court praying it to set aside the high court judgment.
