Gov. Bello Matawalle of Zamfara said he and his colleagues took the Federal Government to the Supreme Court over the new naira swap policy to save the country.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that three state governors of Kaduna, Kogi and Zamfara dragged the Federal Government to the Supreme Court seeking a restraining order to stop the Naira redesign policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
NAN also reports that the Supreme Court on Wednesday halted the CBN from implementing the Feb. 10 deadline for the validity of old notes as legal tender.
A statement issued in Gusau on Thursday by his Special Adviser on Public Enlightenment, Media and Communications, Malam Zailani Bappa said those against their action and subsequent triumph at the Supreme Court were misguided.
“Following the uncouth comments trailing the decision of the Apex Court to listen to and act on the demand of the triumvirate governors on naira swap, Matawalle carpeted the attacks as mere political vendetta.
