The Supreme Court has said that it will give judgment on the matter about currency redesign and consequent naira scarcity between the states and federal government on March 3.
During the trail, the head of the panel of justices, Justice Inyang Okoro, complained about the constitution and the many cases that end up in the apex court saying: “We have outgrown this constitution . Those who have the power to do something should do so. The Supreme Court has been reduced to a customary court.
“Tenant slaps landlord, case must end up here. We have not finished this case. Yet, i still have pre election matters to hear today and tomorrow and see if we can give decision by Friday so people can go for election .
“Should we be subjected to this excruciating process? So please , those of you who have the opportunity, when you are looking at the Constitution , these are the areas you look at. This court is overburdened.”
