Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation, applauded the Supreme Court’s decision to rule against the CBN on the usage of obsolete naira notes.
The Central Bank of Nigeria’s ultimatum of February 10 as the final day the notes would be accepted was declared invalid by the ruling of the Supreme Court.
The notes must stay in circulation after Friday, according to a majority decision by a seven-member panel chaired by Justice John Okoro.
Fani-Kayode praised the Supreme Court in a statement for its “extraordinary insight and empathy” in the case.
When the ordinary man is “confronted with the tyranny of harsh and cruel policies and mad rulers,” he claimed that the justices have demonstrated that the courts are his only remaining hope.
APC chieftains Yahaya Bello, Nasir El-Rufai, and Bello Matawalle were also honored by the former presidential assistant.
On Tuesday, the Kogi, Kaduna, and Zamfara State governments filed lawsuits against the Federal Government.
According to Fani-Kayode, history, and future generations will honor them for obtaining a ruling that protected Nigerians from “the most intricate and worst evil.”
The deadline, according to him, was imposed on the public by “a tiny handful of malevolent technocrats and saboteurs working for a higher authority” and was “the deadliest scheme” ever concocted against democracy.
The director of the APC 2023 campaign stated that there is now an opportunity to alter the narrative and end the severe agony inflicted on Nigerians over the past few days.
The policy that attempted to “inflict agony on the people, damage their future, and wreck democracy,” Fan-Kayode continued, has been deemed unconstitutional.
