The Supreme Court on Wednesday concluded hearing in the suit brought against the Federal Government on the controversial Naira re-design policy and fixed March 3 to give judgment.
Justice John Inyang Okoro fixed the date after taking arguments for and against the suit by some States of the Federation.
The states led by Kaduna, Kogi and Zamfara are praying the Apex Court to void and set aside the policy on the ground that it is inflicting hardships on innocent Nigerians.
The states accused Buhari of usurping the function of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, and asked that the directive issued by President Muhammadu Buhari be voided.
Legal luminary, Abdulhakeem Mustapha presented the case of the states.
Meanwhile, Nigerians have reacted to the Supreme Court’s decision to give judgment on March 3.
Some Nigerians have taken to Twitter to give their opinion on the matters arising from the Supreme Courts date to rule on the matter.
Former Senator, Shehu Sani said the Supreme has left the federal and state governments in limbo over the decision to adjourn judgment to March 3.
“The Supreme Court left the two fighting couples in the middle of the sea”.
@Benigbakpa, a member of the federal House of Representatives said ”The Supreme Court just offered an alternative justification in favour of the Federal Government by assigning a similar probability to sustain the conviction of @MBuhari and @GodwinIEmefiele. Chaotic consequences for the plaintiff.
@Sanusi Dantata in his reaction said ”We all are suffering for the sins of a few! Thanks to the Naira Redesign Policy, and subsequent downturn in economic activities, see how our eggs dey pile! Our store and floor are entire. We must continue to Feed our Birds! Meanwhile, people need to buy! God will see us through!
