It is expected that the Court of Appeal will soon announce the date of judgement.

Ayodele said in a clip shared on his known X (formerly Twitter) page on Tuesday, November 21:

“Nasarawa must not sleep. The PDP candidate must be careful and make more effort so that their plans to turn the appeal upside down will not be realistic.
