JUST IN: Drama In Court As CBN, Naira Scarcity Divide Govs


Published by Streetwise Media



It was an unimaginable drama at the Supreme Court on Wednesday when State Governors expressed different opinions through their Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice on the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Naira redesigning and cashless policy after they filed suits that complied with their belief on the Federal Government plans.

They expressed their beliefs at the apex court during proceedings in accordance with the political parties on whose platform they got into office.

At the resumed hearing, Zamfara, Kogi, and Kaduna governors, who initiated the suit against the central government, received support from their counterparts from Lagos, Niger, Kano, Ekiti, and Ondo, signifying their intention to join the suit against the Federal Government and CBN.

But the atmosphere within the court changed after Nigerians that have come to observe the proceedings observed that a countersuit has been filed not by the CBN but by Bayelsa and Edo state governments.

They watched with surprise after the Bayelsa legal team led by Damian Dodo, and his colleague from Edo told the seven-man panel led by Justice John Okoro that their state would be filing suits as respondents to the case, siding President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision on the case.
