The decision of the trial court not to hear and interperte its own judgment over the operation of the 4th alteration (285,9,10,11,12), of the constitution will now shift to the Appeal court, in the case of 2014 PDP primaries in kogi east 
This is consequent according to the trial court judge,the decision of the Appeal court in the said suit, as subsisting and binding,inspite of the operationality of the 4th alteration on the constitution of Nigeria,that the Appellate and the Apex court ruled.
According to Justice Chikere,said it is only the Appeal court that can determine its decisions, having made pronouncement on  the judgment of the trial court,yet based its decision not to hear the matter on the same 4th alteration the trial court had disregarded 
The judgement of the trial court conditionally was supposed to be 180 days,but ran till 363 days which obviously outside the provision of the law
The retrospective effect of the 4th alteration as determined by the Appeal court and the Supreme court ,is expected to be binding on the trial court 
The 4th alteration amendment came into effect on the 7th of June, and the trial court judgement of Justice Kolawole as he was then,was decided on the 13th of the same month,obviously a week after the law came into effect  
This decision is still subject to the legal fireworks both at the Appeal and the supreme court, and had little or no effect on the impending election on Saturday,the media aide said.
He urged the teeming supporters of Senator Aidoko and PDP,  to troop out enmasse by saturday to vote all PDP candidates,as the soul of the area is been threatened by mere connivance of AM Alfa and kogi state government.
His insistence to resume at the Senate plenary will have to wait, untill the final decision of the apex court on the 4th alteration, disregarded by the trial court.
