The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El Rufai who had taken the Federal Government to the Supreme Court on the implementation of the Cashless policy programme. El Rufai spoke after the Supreme Court ordered the old notes to be brought back into circulation. He made a bold claim that the CBN didn't act on their own accord.
He alleged that the CBN policy was targeted at the APC by a political party and it candidate. He stated that it was necessary for them to challenge the policy at the APEX court. According to him, the President will have to follow the new court order about the old notes.
He said, ''All our prayers through the court have been accepted. This is a victory for the Nigerian people. This CBN policy was targeted at us by a political party and it Presidential candidate. And it has brought an untold hardship on our people. And this is why the three of us took a decision to come to the Supreme Court. We are APC members, the President of Nigeria is from APC but we disagreed with him on this policy and its implementation.''
