An Abuja High Court has postponed  ruling on the application filed by the  Government of the State of Osun on the Federal High Court order stopping INEC to release necessary documents to Osun State Independent Electoral Commission as well as the stoppage of Osun LG allocation suit to January 24,2018.
The State had filed an application for the vacation of the ex-parte orders granted by a Federal High Court in Abuja in 2017 ordering the Central Bank of Nigeria, Accountant General of the Federal government and Ministry of Finance to warehouse statutory allocations to the local government councils  as well as restraining orders in respect of election to Local Council Development Areas and Area Councils regarding the scheduled conduct of the local government election in the state.
According to the application filed by the state government before the same federal High Court by the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice in the state, Dr Basiru Ajibola, the court order was liable to be set aside ‘ex debito justitae’ for fundamental irregularity, breach of Applicant’s right to fair hearing and manifest lack of jurisdiction.
