Prominent politicians have shown gratitude to the Supreme Court for restraining the Federal Government, Central Bank of Nigeria, and banks from enforcing the February 10 deadline for the use of old naira notes.
According to the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, APC governors saved the country from “avoidable and dangerous political crises” by filing the case.
He said: “I want to salute the courage of our governors and most especially the Progressives Governors in APC who acted to save our country from avoidable and dangerous political crises and social unrest which the Central Bank policy on new Naira notes has brought on our country.
“Our country was dangerously careering toward anarchy and political and economic shutdown.
“But with the Supreme Court interim ruling, our country has been pulled back from the precipice.”
Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike also said the state would join the suit filed by Kaduna, Kogi, and Zamfara states at the Supreme Court.
Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai said the ruling would relieve the suffering caused by what he called a “callous” and “myopic” policy by the CBN.
The Bank Customers Association of Nigeria (BCAN) asked the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to release old and new notes to the economy following the order.
