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.

Despite the fact that the Judge had planned to give the ruling this morning, he had to order counsel in the case to address him on the consequences of the appellate court’s decision on the current case.
At the time of filing this report, PDP Counsel, Emmanuel Ukala (SAN), who brought the case against Ayade before the court, was speaking.
Justice Taiwo also ordered Ozekhome to present a case for Ayade, with the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) lawyer following behind.
