The Judge of the Kaduna State High Court of justice No. 1 sitting in Zaria, M. k Dabo has vacated the initial exparte order he issued on the 1st day of July, 2021 restraining the swearing of Ubale Alibaba of the PDP after he was declared winner of the Sabon Gari re-run election by INEC on 19th June, 2021.
Previously, the trial Judge had granted an interim order exparte pursuant to which he restrained the Speaker of the KDHA from swearing-in Ubale Alibaba who is the elected member of the Sabon Gari Constituency into the KDHA.
The Judge in his own wisdom asked the parties to address him on whether he has the jurisdiction in the first instance to issue such an order. Incompliance, with that order of Court parties addressed the Court on the propriety or otherwise of the order exparte made on the 1st day of July, 2021
