An assertion by a previous Publicity Secretary, Chris Finebone, said the court suspended the issue to January 21, 2021, following a movement of remain brought by Nwuzi through his Lawyer, Tuduru Edeh. He told the court that his customer had advanced the prior court choice to hear the issue in the midst of hostile issues of locale.
Despite objections raised by the plaintiff’s Lawyer, Ifedayo Adedipe, Justice Omotosho ruled that for justice to be served, the matter should be stood down till January 21, 2021, to receive an update on the process at the Court of Appeal.
The PDP sued Nwuzi, who defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) recently, to court vowing to retrieve the legislative seat from him.
Finebone stated: “The PDP should disregard Nwuzi and face the monsters, for example, Ebonyi State Governor David, and others, who have left are as yet leaving the gathering. The lead representative should fret about stemming the cross country departure the PDP is seeing and let Nwuzi be.”
