Naira swap deadline: Ask Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu – Lawyer tells Nigerians

Aloy Ejimakor, the Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has reacted to those asking the Federal Government to obey the Supreme Court judgment on the deadline extension of the old naira notes.

Ejimakor said those asking the Federal Government to obey the ruling of the Supreme Court should tell the government to release Kanu.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court temporarily stopped the Federal Government from using the old naira notes from February 10, 2023.

LEAKBLAST had reported that a seven-member panel led by Justice John Okoro, halted the Federal Government’s move through an exparte application brought by three northern states of Kaduna, Kogi and Zamfara.

Reacting to the ruling, some Nigerians urged the Federal Government to obey the apex court.

In a tweet, Ejimakor wrote: “Those asking the Federal government to obey the Supreme Court judgment extending the deadline on old Naira notes should also ask the Federal government to comply with the Court/Tribunal rulings that called for the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. All judgments are created equal.”
