A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Thursday upheld the constitutionality of the Presidential Executive Order No. Such order may be brought in the form of Executive Order. This is the presidential authority which can be exercised in an Executive Order,” the judge said. The court had earlier held that the plaintiffs have the locus standi (the right to bring the suit) because the execution of the Executive Order is not limited to those listed in the Order. The plaintiff, therefore, asked the court for an order setting aside and/or nullifying the provisions of the Executive Order No.
