The plaintiffs are the:

Peoples Democratic Change (PDC),
Democratic Peoples Party (DPP),
African Peoples Alliance (APPA) and
Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN).

When the matter came up at the court yesterday, counsel to the plaintiffs, Aliyu Usman, said they wanted an order to compel the defendants to conduct council polls. However, counsel to the defendants, Ibrahim

Hussaini, said his clients were not served properly, a development which led to arguments at the court. Usman contended that the defendants were duly served, while Hussaini asked the court to give them more time to reply the motion properly.

The presiding judge, Justice David Awak, adjourned the case to May 10.
