Governor Godwin Obaseki and the Assembly were listed as respondents in the suit.
At Wednesday’s proceedings, Shuaib’s counsel, Ayotunde Ogunleye, told the court that the matter was initially slated for Monday but did not hold due to the organised labour’s strike.
He also reminded the judge of the agreement by the parties for an accelerated hearing of the suit.
Justice Omotoso adjourned the hearing of the suit till June 28 following an agreement by lawyers from both parties.
