A Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed the suit by governors of the 36 states seeking to stop deductions of $418 million Paris Club refund debt. 

Justice Inyang Ekwo on Friday held that the suit was lacking in merit.

The judge also held that the action, brought by the attorneys general of the 36 states, was an abuse of court process and filed without the locus standi.
The governors, through their counsel, Sunday Ibrahim Ameh (SAN), had asked the court to stop the deduction of $418 million from their accounts.
The court had earlier refused to grant a request for an injunctive order restraining the federal government from proceeding with the deductions
