New Naira: Supreme Court Adjourns Kaduna, Kogi, Zamfara’s Suit Hearing

The Supreme Court sitting in Abuja on Wednesday adjourned a hearing in the suit banning the use of the old naira to Wednesday, 22nd February 2023.

The three states filed the suit against the Federal Government seeking a restraining order to stop the full implementation of the naira redesign policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria.

In a new development, nine states have filed to join the suit initially filed by Kogi, Kaduna and Zamfara states.

Meanwhile, pending hearing, the old order to suspend the ban of the now older 200, 500 and 1000 naira notes subsist.
