A Federal High Court, sitting in Kaduna, has adjourned till October 13 for judgment, the case filed by Sani Sha’aban over the conduct of All Progressive Congress (APC) primaries conducted by the party in Kaduna for the 2023 elections.
Recall that Sani Sha’aban had dragged the APC Senator representing Kaduna-Central and gubernatorial candidate of the party and other stakeholders before the High Court over the conduct of the party’s gubernatorial primaries without legal and due delegates.
The counsel to Sani Sha’aban, John Mshelia, said the court adjourned the case to the 13th of October for the defendants to file their process because the three defendants were out of time to file it. However, counsel to one of the defendants, Senator Uba Sani, refused to speak on the matter when approached to do so.
The case between Sani Sha’aban, APC, and Senator Uba Sani, among others, was filed on 20th June, 2022 with yesterday’s hearing as the fourth. The court thereafter adjourned the case to the 13th of October, 2022 for judgment.
Sha’aban, an aspirant for the State’s gubernatorial position, alleged that the party primary that produced Uba Sani and others as candidates for the 2023 polls should be declared null and void, alleging that the party’s statutory delegates were substituted by those people who would barely read or write, picked from the streets to do the bidding of Uba Sani and his sponsors.
