The New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP has alleged APC candidates under Justice Hadiza Shagari of a Federal High Court sitting in Kaduna for not emerging through a legal process or due process as prescribed by the Electoral Act and other extant laws.

The party is challenging the list of the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidates for Governorship and State Assembly seats published by INEC on July 22, for the General Election.

The case was however adjourned to Sept. 15 for hearing.Justice Hadiza explained that the case was adjourned on grounds that all the parties were yet to be served by INEC the critical documents and processes it filed to the court.

Concerning the serving,counsel to INEC, Halima Gachi, had earlier told the court that she was not certain that all the parties were served, explaining that she took over the case from her colleague in the office.

The NNPP Lead counsel, Wole Agunbiade, SAN, had told the court that he was yet to be served by INEC.

While APC Lead Counsel, Sule Shuaibu said he was served, adding however, that he needed more time to process all the documents and thereafter appealed for time to file his motions.
