The Supreme Court, on Friday, declared that the Executive Order 10 on the funding of State Judiciary and Legislature, was unlawful and unconstitutional.

The majority of a 7-member panel of the court agreed that the President, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), exceeded his constitutional powers in issuing the EO 10.

The EO 10 issued by the president was then voided, and set aside by six out of the seven members of the panel.

The court also dismissed the N66 billion suit filed by state governors against the Federal Government
