From Femi Oyelola Kaduna
The absence of the presiding judge in the case filed against Kaduna state Governor, Mallam Nasir El Rufai by the state sacked workers was stalled as the matter was adjourned to a date to be communicated to the parties.
The 4,042 sacked local government workers had dragged the governor before the Industrial Court seeking reinstatement.
The workers who were sacked in November 2017 are also asking for an order of the government to direct the government to pay them their full entitlements and damages caused by its action.
The matter was slated to be heard yesterday but was adjourned due to the absence of the judge, Justice Sunusi Kado.
An official of the court, Happiness Luka, informed both parties in the case that the judge had rushed to Abuja to attend the burial of his colleague, Justice Waziri Abayi, who died today.
She said that a new date would be communicated to them later.
