In a recent development at the High Court of the Abuja Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Justice Hamza Muazu has decreed that Godwin Emefiele, the ex-Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), must be held in Kuje prison until November 22, 2023, awaiting the court’s verdict on his bail plea.

Civil Society Organizations, CSOs, under the aegis of the Coalition of Civil Society Organisation and Youth Group, CCSGYG, yesterday, in a massive protest in Abuja, warned the Department of State Security Service, DSS, against a plot to arrest and detain the Central Bank of Nigeria’s Governor Godwin Emefiele over some trump-up charges.

It came as a surprise when Nigerians learnt that the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, revealed plans to release new naira notes design different from the nation’s present currency denominations.

The Coalition of Civil Society Groups, CCSG, has taken the lead in a collective effort with other CSOs to commend the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration for recouping the nation’s economy since the negative impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic during the lockdown period.
