CSOs Rejects ruling and urged the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) to Vacate The Order.

Coalition of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) of Nigeria says that the Supreme Court ruling of stopping the February 10 deadline for the validity of three old naira notes is designed to enable corrupt politicians to share the old naira notes during the February 25 and March 11 general elections.

However, in a swift reaction, the CSOs rejected the ruling and urged the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Olukayode Ariwoola to vacate the order.

They warned against any protest by any group to sustain the supreme court ruling over the naira swap issue.

Meanwhile, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mike Ozekhome, has explained that the judgement of the Supreme Court restraining the Federal Government from implementing the Central Bank of Nigeria’s February 10 ultimatum for the old banknotes to cease being legal tender in the country was to prevent the subject matter of the suit from being truncated.
