Written by Adewale Adeyemi on February 8, 2023
The Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has commended the Supreme Court for halting the ban on the old 200 naira, 500 naira and 1,000 naira to remain legal tender beyond the February tenth deadline until the case is fully disposed of.
The Supreme Court today in a suit brought before it by the governments of Zamfara, Kogi and Kaduna States gave an interim injunction against the CBN and the federal government.
The APC Presidential candidate also hailed the Governors of the 36 states for standing on the side of the Nigerian people over the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) new Naira and cashless policies that have subjected the masses to pain.
Tinubu in a statement issued by the Director, Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Committee, Bayo Onanuga, called on the apex bank to ensure that the Supreme Court ruling was effectively executed by taking all necessary steps to ensure sufficient availability of Naira notes (whether old or new) and properly sensitizing the public on the ruling and the consequent validity of old Naira.
