A Federal High Court in Abuja yesterday fixed April 11 for judgment in a suit seeking the declaration of the seat of former House of Representatives Speaker Yakubu Dogara vacant following his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Justice Donatus Okorowo, who fixed the date, said though the judgment was earlier scheduled for yesterday, it was not ready.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had asked the court to remove the former Speaker as member representing Dass, Tafawa Balewa and Bogoro Federal Constituency of Bauchi State, for his defection to APC.

While the PDP and its Bauchi State Chairman Hamza Akuyam, are the plaintiffs; Mr. Dogara, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), and the APC are first to firth defendants respectively in the suit.
