The appeal filed before the supreme court are from governorship candidates in Sokoto, Imo, Kano, Benue, Bauchi, and the Plateau States.

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, presided over a seven-man panel of justices hearing the appeals.

The CJN while speaking called on counsels representing the parties not to appear with more than five lawyers and ordered that parties not involved in the cases to vacate the court premises.

Shortly after the court resumed sitting, the CJN adjourned the case till Tuesday after he announced that one of the presiding justices was sick.

The first case heard by the court was the appeal filed by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Kano State, Mr Abba Yusuf.

However, the Supreme Court has shifted the judgement in Kano Governorship appeal to January 20, 2020.
