After listening to the argument of the counsel to PLASIEC and Hon. Dull, Justice Daniel Longji then adjourned the motion for committal of contempt of court by the PLASIEC chairman to February 12 2015.
Hon. Daniel Dull of the DPP had dragged the PLASIEC chairman to the state high court for his failure to obey the order of the appellant court which ruled that the honourable was the winner of the February 25th LG election and so should be issued certificate of return by PLASIEC and subsequently be sworn into office by the state government.
