CBN Will Honour Supreme Court Decision - AGF
Though he has already filed a case against the decision but the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr Abubakar Malami, SAN, has said the Federal Government would comply with the order of the Supreme Court for the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, to suspend its scheduled deadline for the use of the old N200, N500 and N1000 banknotes.
Malami, who had since filed a preliminary objection to challenge the apex court order, said the government would abide by it until it is set aside.
The AGF made FG’s position on the matter known when he appeared as a guest on Arise Television.
He faulted the order of the apex court on the premise that the CBN, being a necessary party, was not joined in the suit that was filed by three northern states.
The Rule of Law provides that there has to be obedience to the judgment and orders of the Supreme Court, the Rule of Law provides that when you are not happy with a ruling you can file an application for setting aside and in compliance with the rights and privileges vested in us as a government we are equally looking at challenging the order and seeking for it to be set aside”, he added.
