"In the case of Umaru v. Tunga (2012) ALL FWLR (Part 607) 726 at 740 it was held that:-

 

"Where a court created the enabling environment for fair hearing to all and a party did not take advantage of the environment, the fault is his and not that of the court. In the instant case, where the Defendant failed to use the opportunity created by the trial court to present his case the allegation of breach of fair hearing was discountenanced by the court."
