Effiong is requesting that the Court decide four issues which are: “Regardless of whether in perspective on the surviving arrangements of Section 145 (1) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as altered), the first Defendant can legitimately continue in the midst of a furlough for any time span without transmitting a composed revelation to the President of the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the Federal Republic of Nigeria with that impact, which will enable the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to play out the elements of the President in an acting limit.

“Regardless of whether the first Defendant’s activity in continuing out of town to the United Kingdom from the 25th day of April, 2019 to the fifth day of May, 2019 without transmitting the composed assertion conceived in Section 145 (1) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as changed) to the President of the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the Federal Republic of Nigeria isn’t in struggle with the arrangements of Section 145 (1) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as altered).

“Regardless of whether the first Defendant in declining to hold fast to the reasonable and unambiguous arrangements of Section 145 (1) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as revised) has not by that particular activity damaged his pledge of office and the Provisions of the Constitution which he vowed to maintain.

“Regardless of whether the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as revised) or some other law so far as that is concerned, licenses the first Defendant to practice presidential specialist over the undertakings of the Federal Republic of Nigeria from any nation outside the regional ward of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, spare when he is out of the nation on authority conciliatory commitment.”

The Court is yet to fix a date for knowing about the case.
