The plaintiff in this case sought for general damages, interest and costs of the suit against the defendant for breach of contract or unlawful termination of contract.
The plaintiff averred that they entered into a contract with the defendant, where the plaintiff obtained consent to proceed with the detailed design stage of the project, later, that he was requested to limit himself to the outline stage design to budget reasons and was never paid for the detailed design stage work.
The defendants argued that the plaintiff was given a stop order but he proceeded with the contract at his own risk, without communicating to the defendant. That, the plaintiff was not entitled to any relief sought and that the suit ought to be dismissed with costs.
The issues that were raised for consideration were, whether there was breach of contract, whether there was variation in contract between the parties, and the remedies that were available to the parties.
