Mr. Salauwa who had earlier reserved ruling on the matter of leadership between Ahmed Makarfi and Modu Sheriff factions, said the court will wait for the decision of the apex court for what it worth.

“We will await the decision of the Supreme Court in all the processes; no matter what they are worth.

“We hereby rule that this matter and other matters awaiting decision by this court are hereby adjourned sine-die pending the decision of the apex court,” said Mr. Salauwa.

The appellate court had planned deciding on the authentic candidate to represent the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in the November 26 governorship election in Ondo State.
