Ejes Gist News reports, the CNG had filed a lawsuit against the National Assembly and the Attorney General, requesting that the court order the defendants to halt the present constitutional review process and hold a vote to establish what determines Nigeria and who populates it.
The lawsuit was filed to determine the destiny of pro-Biafra, pro-Yoruba, and other secessionist movements. After the court before Justice Inyang Ekpo was unable to appear owing to an official assignment, the case was deferred until January 20, 2022.
