The Court of Appeal sitting in Yola, on Monday reserved judgment on the appeal filed by the Speaker of Taraba State House of Assembly Hon. Peter Abel Diah.
Diah had approached the Appeal Court to set aside the judgement of the Elections Petitions Tribunal which nullified his election victory under the banner of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The 3-man panel of judges of the Yola Appeal Court – Justice Jummai Hannatu Sankey, Justice U. Onyemenem, Justice Saidu Tanko Hussaini, called on the counsel to the Speaker and APC to deliberate and inform the court on the day they agree for judgement.
Speaking to reporters briefly after the court sitting, the counsel to the PDP, Barrister Solo Akuma (SAN) said that he was confident that the Appeal Court judgement would favour the embattled Speaker.
