Peter Okoye Sends Message To APC Governors On Naira Redesign

Recall that APC governors had asked the Supreme Court to declare the directive of President Muhammadu Buhari, on the naira swap policy as unconstitutional.

Kanyi Daily reported that Buhari had on Thursday, directed the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to recirculate only the old N200 notes.

The president’s directive was after the supreme court did not vacate the order that the old N200, N500, and N1000 notes are still legal tender.

Since Buhari’s directive, some of the APC governors have been giving contrary directives to their state citizens to continue accepting the old N500 and N1000 notes.
