Naira Notes: Supreme Court bans FG, CBN in a temporary ruling
Following continuous pressure and public outcry on the scarcity of the newly redesigned naira notes nationwide, Nigeria’s apex court, the Supreme Court has temporarily halted the federal government and CBN’s ban of old N1000, N500 and N200 notes after February 10, 2023.
Led by Justice John Okoro, the seven-man judicial panel halted the move of the federal government in a ruling in an ex parte application brought by three northern states of Kaduna, Kogi and Zamfara.
