The Attorneys General of Edo and Bayelsa states were joined as co-respondents.
The court ordered the original plaintiffs and the respondent – the Attorney General of the Federation – to amend the processes already filed to reflect the new parties.
During the last hearing, the court granted an interim injunction restraining the Federal Government from implementing the CBN’s February 10 deadline for the swapping of the old naira notes with the new ones.
The case has however been adjourned to February 22nd for continuation.
