The Supreme Court declared on Wednesday that it would not be pressured to become a scapegoat in the country over the ongoing controversies on the Naira redesign and swap policy by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

Naija News reports that the court is ruling today on a suit filed by the state governments of Kaduna, Kogi, Zamfara and several others against President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration and the apex bank.

However, at the court today, the seven-member panel of justices led by Justice Inyang Okoro, rose from the hearing of the suit, stating that the move is to allow the exchange of fresh applications by lawyers.

Meanwhile, Justice Okoro insisted that the matter must be decided today.

“You are not a stranger in this country as you are a participant. We don’t want a situation where the Supreme Court will be made a score goat. We refuse to be made a scapegoat,” he said.
