Sokoto State Division of the Court of Appeal has fixed June 23 for hearing a suit challenging the nomination of Sen. Bala Na’Allah as the All Progressive Congress (APC) Kebbi South Senatorial District candidate, filed by Malam Sadiq Sule-Iko.
Sule-Iko had approached the court to challenge the decision of Federal High Court in Birnin Kebbi that struck out his suit in which he challenged the validity of Na’Allah’s nomination during the APC primaries conducted in October 2018.
The Federal High Court struck out the case on the grounds that the suit was not filed within the 14 days duration as required by the Constitution and also held that in spite of the irregularities, intimidation, police harassment at the primary election held on Oct. 3, 2018, and Oct. 4, 2018, the plaintiff failed to file the suit within the required time which in turn has rendered the case “incompetent”.
The court, however, faulted Sule-Iko’s counsel for not signing the writ of summons which could not supply valid information to the court.
At the sitting of the appeal  court on Friday, the Appellant’s Counsel, Mr Abubakar Suleiman, moved an application to amend the originating summons opposed by Mr Afraimu Jingi, the Respondent’s Counsel, in which he argued on the legality to effect changes on the summons after expatriation of stipulated period in accordance with pre-election matters regulation and Court rules.
Reacting to this, Justice Ahmed Belgore, the presiding judge, adjourned the case until June 23, to hear the main appeal and gave Respondent Counsel five days to reply on motion papers served to him on the amendment papers.
