Ayade’s defection matter

Anxiety as Justice Taiwo Taiwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja allowed legal fireworks by counsel in the defection case involving Cross River State governor Ben Ayade’s defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC), putting the judgement on hold.

Following a letter from the governor’s lawyer, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), who claimed to be directing the court’s attention to a judgement of the Enugu Division of the Court of Appeal, the judge placed the judgement on hold.
