The Supreme Court has adjourned the appeal filed by a former Information Minister of Information, Jerry Gana, challenging the judgment of the appeal court which dismissed his appeal challenging the candidacy of Mr. Donald Duke as the presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party, (SDP).

The Supreme Court panel presided over by the acting Chief Justice of Nigeria Justice Tanko Mahmood, said the court can not go ahead to hear the suit and deliver judgment as requested by professor Gana because all parties have not been properly served as required by law.
