Justice Tanko Muhammad, the Chief Justice of Nigeria, who leads the seven-man panel of the apex court, overruled Atiku and his party’s request that their seven interlocutory appeals should be heard after the main one must have been argued.

He stated that it would be unnecessary to hear the interlocutory appeals when a judgment on the main appeal marked would suffice.
