Justice Abdulaziz Waziri of a State High Court in Yola has in a sitting today extended the order stopping the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, from conducting the Supplementary election for the governorship race on Saturday, March 23, 2019, by adjourning the case till Tuesday, March 26, 2019, for the ruling.  
Justice Waziri hinged his reason for the extension of the order and adjournment on health grounds saying he wants to take time to study the submissions made by counsels in the party.
At the resumed hearing of the matter brought by the candidate of the MRDD, Mr Eric Theman, against INEC for non-inclusion of his party logo in the ballot paper for the March 9 governorship race in Adamawa State.
Counsel to INEC, T.M. Inuwa (SAN),  informed the court that the MRDD in Adamawa State does not have a governorship candidate for the election because the party has no legal nomination of a governorship candidate neither does the party have a nominated deputy governorship candidate as stipulated by law.
INEC insisted that it had published the names of the 29 governorship candidates since January 30 without that of the MRDD and wondered why The man of the MRDD chose to approach the court only after elections has already taken place.
The Commission posited that the candidate of the MRDD has no legal right worthy of the protection of the court as he lacks the locus to be before the court with such claims.
The electoral umpire also challenged the jurisdiction of the Adamawa State High Court to adjudicate on the matter saying apart from the Election Tribunals that have the mandate such matters should be before a Federal High Court.
 Counsel to the MRDD Candidate, Yemi Pitan, maintained that the court has jurisdiction and it should grant their prayers by dismissing the defendant's bid to set aside the exparte order stopping the election and also sought for an order of interlocutory injunction stop INEC from further conducting governorship election in Adamawa.
Justice Waziri thereafter adjourned to Tuesday, March 26, 2019, for judgement.
The judge had earlier struck out Peoples Democratic Party, PDP's application to join in the case as an interested party after PDP had withdrawn from the case upon sighting that the counsel to the MRDD intended to use the issue to tactically waste time.
