President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, February 8, 2023, has received the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele in Aso Rock, Abuja, headlinenews.news reports.
This is coming hours after the Supreme Court ruling of Wednesday stopping the February 10 deadline for the validity of three old naira notes.
A seven-man panel of the Supreme Court led by Justice John Okoro, in a unanimous ruling, granted the interim injunction after an ex parte filed by Kogi, Kaduna, and Zamfara state governments.
The highest court also held that the Federal Government and the apex must not continue with the deadline pending the determination of a notice on notice on in respect of the issue on February 15, 2023.
Recall that Nigerians have been finding it hard to access cash due the CBN. This has lead to protests across the country.
