Northern Coalition drags NASS to court over constitutional review

The Coalition of Northern Group (CNG), on Thursday, sued the National Assembly, asking that the ongoing constitutional review across the country be stopped with immediate effect.

The suit, filed by the plaintiff and leadership of the group, Nastura Ashir Shariff, Balarabe Rufa’i l, Abdul-aziz Sulaiman and Aminu Adam, joined the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami; Senate President, Ahmad Lawan; Speaker House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila; and the National Assembly as defendants.

Addressing newsmen in Abuja, the spokesman of the group, Abdul-aziz Sulaiman, argued that instead of ongoing constitutional review, the defendants should immediately provide a framework for the actualisation of agitators’ demand on self-determination.
