Naira crisis: Emefiele, others at CBN acting above the law – Fani-Kayode

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, chieftain, Femi Fani-Kayode, has rained curses on the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Governor, Godwin Emefiele and others at the apex court over the continued naira scarcity.

Fani-Kayode said God’s judgment and curse would be on Emefiele and those at CBN who would not obey the Supreme Court ruling.

In a tweet, the former Aviation Minister lamented that Emefiele and others at the CBN are acting like they are above the law.

He wrote: “May God’s judgement & curse be upon those at Central Bank who believe that, despite the ruling of the courts, they are above the law & are greater than their creator.

“Your money, power, properties & wealth are for but a fleeting moment in the sands of time & echoes of eternity.

“Nigeria is for the living & not the dead. Obi-tuary (message of death) & A-tiku (death) are not our portions.

“The Lord of Hosts raised a standard against them & bound the spirit of death that leads them.”

The CBN had refused to obey the Supreme Court ruling as naira scarcity persists in the country with massive hunger in the land.

The apex court had recently ruled that both the old and new naira notes remain legal tenders until December 31, 2023.

  1. Are you a believer in the rule of law?
    Fani, how does it feel when law is flouted?
    Kayode, does it really matter that Emefiele is not yielding to Supreme Court ruling when we, the citizens are at home with the CBN's policy ? Cry not more than the bereaved. FFK, tell INEC, Mr Bubu and BAT to stop playing "above the law" Bunch of rogues.

  2. I don't know when the supreme court became a financial/economic policy maker. The CBN had reasons for the naira redesign. How can the supreme court come and destroy the gains of the policy by ruling that the old notes should be recirculated and being in use till December. That is too long.
