Sequel to the sacking of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairmen in Ondo State, by the Akeredolu’s administration in February, 2017, the Federal Court of Appeal on Tuesday (today) in Akure, the state capital,January 16, 2018 ruled that all parties to the two pending cases before the court should go ahead to file their briefs.
Appellant to the first case, PDP was given three days to file its briefs while the court also gave seven days to the respondent, ODIEC to do same.
The court also ruled in the second case that was instituted by the people’s Redemption Party (PRP) that Barrister Ajakaiye who is the counsel to two of the respondent has overreached himself through his numerous motions that are apparently aimed at stalling proceedings in the case.
Again, the court clearly stated that what that the first appellant, PDP was asking was the leave to appeal the judgement of the State High court and not a rejoinder itself as contested by the defendant’s counsel.
Counsel to the two appellants, Barrister Femi Aborisade, a human right lawyer however expressed satisfaction with the court proceedings. The case was adjourned till Tuesday February 6, 2018.
