The counsel, therefore, requested an extension of time to enable them to file all their applications on the case filed against his client by the applicant, Nasir El-Rufai.

The plea was also advanced by the Commissioner of Justice and Attorney General of Kaduna State, Sule Shauaibu, SAN, who is a defendant in the case.

On his part, counsel to the applicant, Sule Umoru, did not oppose the application for the extension of time.

After listening to all the submissions made by the counsels, the presiding judge,  Justice R.M AIKAWA, adjourned the case to July 17th, 2024, to enable the respondents to file all their applications including the substantive application.

Ex-Governor Nasir El-Rufai had on June 26th, filed a case at the Federal High Court Kaduna to challenge the probe report of the Kaduna State House of Assembly which indicted him for corruption during his eight years of administration.

Among other claims, he asked the court to declare the Assembly report null and void for violating his right to a fair hearing as guaranteed under the Constitution,  since he was not invited by the House to defend himself against all the allegations levelled against him.
