The Federal Government’s lawsuit regarding a cashless policy has been delayed by an hour by the Supreme Court.
The judgment originally scheduled for 9 a.m. would now be delivered by 10 a.m.
No reason was advanced for the sudden change in timing, but one of the registrars of the court announced that the justices directed him to announce the shift in timing.
Meanwhile, Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai, Yahaya Bello, and Bello Matamale, respectively, the governors of Kaduna, Kogi, and Zamfara, the three states that initiated the lawsuit, have flocked to the court to see the proceedings.
A retinue of senior government officials accompanied Bello when he first arrived at the Court.
Later, El-Rufai joined him, and when he did, some of the top attorneys handling his side of the case greeted him at the door.
The three governors went into a quiet spot to wait for the Justices after the announcement of the change in judgment delivery time.
