Kano State Governorship Election Petition tribunal sitting at Miller Road on Thursday warned parties in the petition filed by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) challenging the election of Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of the All Progressive Congress (APC) that it will not entertain unnecessary adjournments.
Justice Halima Shamaki said proceedings in the matter are expected to end in October.
Counsel representing the petitioners, Adegboyega Awomolo (SAN), on Thursday told the court that they had to end presentation of their case.
Justice Shamaki said the tribunal would not accommodate delay tactics from the respondents.
The judge said INEC, Ganduje and APC are to put up their defence serially, explaining that the court, on the commencement of the opening of defence by the respondents, would not concede to requests for short adjournments.
