Naira redesign: it's a MUST for CBN to obey Supreme Court – Falana warns CBN

Foremost human rights activist, Femi Falana, SAN, has disclosed why the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, must comply with the Supreme Court order regarding the currency swap crisis.


Falana, in a statement on Thursday, said the apex bank should not fall for the reports and opinions indicating that it could ignore the Supreme Court’s judgement restraining it from enforcing the ban on the old Naira notes.


In his statement titled, “Why CBN Must Obey Ex Parte Order Of Supreme Court”, he highlighted many cases supporting the court’s decision.


He asked CBN and its management to allow the judgement to run its entire course in the interim, pending an order of dismissal filed by the Federal Government.


Falana warned doing otherwise would spell doom and chaos for the country.


“In the interim, the Federal Government of Nigeria and its agencies, including the Central Bank of Nigeria, are bound by the valid and subsisting ex parte order of the Supreme Court of Nigeria until it is set aside by the same court. The alternative is to compound the ongoing anarchy and chaos in the land,” he said.
