The appellate court which said the order was to preserve the ‘Res’ (subject matter) of the appeal before it, gave the order on Friday, September 10.

This came after Attorney-General of Lagos state, Moyosore Onigbanjo informed the court of an application for the Lagos state government to be joined as a co-respondent in the appeal filed by FIRS.

The three-member panel of justices of the appellate court led by Haruna Tsammani asked parties involved in the case to refrain from taking action, following a judgment by a high court that gave Rivers state government the right to collect VAT instead of the FIRS.
