President Muhammadu Buhari has taken to the Supreme Court by states controlled by both the All Progressives Congress, APC, and other opposition parties in Nigeria for his executive order.

The 36 states of the Federation on Monday had sued President Buhari challenging the executive order he signed in May.

The 36 states demands that the apex court to quash Buhari’s executive order on the funding of courts, signed on May 20.

The states argued that the president’s executive order no. 00-10 of 2020 transferred the Federal Government’s responsibility of funding the capital and recurrent expenditures of the state High Courts, Sharia Courts of Appeal, and the Customary Courts of Appeal, to the state governments.

They pointed out that this order is a clear violation of sections 6 and 8(3) of the 1999 constitution.

The states further claimed that they had been funding the capital projects in the listed courts since 2009, while asking the Supreme Court to order the Federal Government to make a refund to them.

The states’ lawyers were led by a former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, Augustine Alegeh, and includes 9 Senior Advocates of Nigeria, SANs, who filed for the states on Monday.

Abubabar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, and Minister of Justice, was listed as the sole respondent in the suit.
