Justice Mohammed Idris of the Federal High Court in Lagos on Monday warned the Federal Government and Distribution Companies (DISCOs) against disobeying subsisting court orders on electricity tariff. He said the government must not act in a way that shows disdain for the court in a constitutional democracy.

Justice Idris said: “The point must be made that obedience to the rule of law by all citizens but more particularly those who publicly take the oath of office to protect and preserve the Constitution is desideratum to good governance and respect for rule of law. ‎In a constitutional democratic society like ours, this is meant to be the norm.
