On August 10 2020, when suit No: FHC/ABJ/CS/758/2020 came up for mention. The learned judge suo motu, abridged the time allowed by law for the defendants to respond even when some of the defendants have not been served with the originating processes by fixing the matter for August 24 2020 for hearing and that responses must be filed before then. That at the time learned judge made the said order a motion on notice to abridge time was pending before the court which had not been served on all parties, we have no confidence of getting justice before justice Taiwo and therefore humbly request that the said matters be transferred to any other vacation judge in the federal Capital Territory.
