Amidst the lingering scarcity of new naira notes as a result of the recent currency redesign policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria and its attendant hardship on the citizens, the Arewa Consultative has faulted President Muhammadu Buhari for disobeying the Supreme Court judgment ordering the recirculation of the old naira notes till December 31, 2023.
The group said 10 days is long enough time for the government to find its way towards complying with a court order which import is central to the achievement of peace, order and good governance in the country.
The Northern socio-political group described the President’s action as a damage to his credentials as a democrat and a stickler for the rule of law.
In a statement issued by its Secretary General, Murtala Aliyu on Sunday, the ACF lamented that the naira redesign policy has led to runaway inflation in food and other commodities.
The ACF also warned that the crisis has the possibility to cause a serious social disorder leading to the possible breakdown of law and order throughout Nigeria.
