ABIA JOINS SUIT AGAINST CBN NAIRA REDESIGN POLICY

Abia state Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, has directed the Attorney General of the State, Chief Uche Ihediwa, SAN, to put all necessary legal processes to join the suit over the new policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, to change old Naira notes to new ones.

Commissioner for Information, Barr. Eze Chikamnayo, in a statement, explained that the state government decided to join the suit challenging the policy at the Supreme Court as a result of the untold hardship being experienced by Abia citizens due to the unavailability and poor distribution of the newly redesigned notes.

He further stated that the state government wants the Naira redesign policy to be implemented in a way that it will not continue to threaten the peace and economic well-being of Nigerian citizens.
