The Supreme Court, on Wednesday, fixed March 3 to deliver its judgement on the consolidated suit that states filed to set aside the decision of the Federal Government to ban the use of old N200, N500 and N1000 banknotes as valid legal tenders.

A seven-man panel of the apex court okayed the matter for judgement after all the parties adopted their briefs of arguments.

It will be recalled that though only three northern states- Kaduna, Kogi and Zamfara- initially approached the Supreme Court to challenge FG’s decision, other states subsequently persuaded the Justice Inyang Okoro led panel to join them as interested parties in the matter.

The states the court joined as parties in the suit were: Lagos, Cross River, Ogun, Ekiti, Ondo, Sokoto, Abia, Jigawa, Kano, Rivers and President Muhammadu Buhari’s homestate, Katsina.
