The inadvertent postponement somewhat dilated the judgment delivery by three weeks. Ekwo has now given judgment in the suit.  On Tuesday, April 18, 2023, he voided the presidential action that suddenly removed Araraume from office on January 17, 2022, about three months after he was appointed, saying it was wrongful, illegal, null and void, and of no legal consequence because the removal did not follow the procedures provided for in the extant laws. 

The candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Binani, had on Monday approached the court for leave to file an application for judicial review of the administrative decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) made on April 16, 2023 in respect of her declaration as winner of the governorship election in Adamawa State which held on March 18 and the supplementary elections of April 15.
