According to the statement, some of the reports allegedly misinterpreted the decision of the court in suit no FHC/ABJ/CS/463/2020 on 13th May 2020.

Kalu expressed that the court only directed the House to cause an appearance to show reason why the order should not be granted contrary to reports that the court order stopped the passage of the bill.
