Adamu Garba, a former candidate for president of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has explained why he and his team were absent from the hearing of their lawsuit filed against Twitter founder and CEO Jack Dorsey.
Adamu Garba said his lawyers received notification of the hearing late, so they requested a postponement, IgbereTV reports.
Recall that Tope Akinyode, a Nigerian rights lawyer who filed a lawsuit against the criminal complaint administered by former presidential hopeful Adamu Garba against Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, said that Garba and his lawyer did not appear for the hearing at the Federal Superior Court on Wednesday, November 25, 2020.
Talking about his decision not to appear, Garba took to his Twitter account to reveal the reasons, while stating that his team will follow the case to the end.
Read his tweets below.
“Our attorneys received notice of the hearing quite late, so we had to request a postponement of the case, which the court graciously granted. This is how the date of April 21, 2021 was set.
However, we can approach the court to request an earlier date.
Stay tuned. We will win this. “
“We will continue with this case until the end. There is no way back.
We will not allow any violation and / or interference in our local political affairs by any foreign actor.
This case will serve as a deterrent to anyone blatantly abusing their privilege against our country.
Jack must pay. “
“We are confident in the court’s ability to deliver adequate justice, against the violation of our sovereignty, the subversion of our peace and the collective well-being of Nigerian security.
So we hope to have a Twitter office in Nigeria and a billion dollars for the victims of the #EndSARS protest. “
“Join me, let’s win for our country, Nigeria.
