Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has backed the Supreme Court judgement extending the validity of old N200, N500, and N1,000 notes till December 31, 2023.
Taunting the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Governor, Godwin Emefiele, Wike said he has no option but to comply with the decision of the Supreme Court.
Speaking in Abuja, the governor said: “I thank God the Supreme Court today has told them the old money remains valid till the end of December.
“So, if you still have the old money, use it. The highest court of the land has said so.
“Too bad for the governor of the Central Bank. He has no choice. There is no other directive that can override the judgement of the Supreme Court.”
