Recall that the apex court, in a unanimous ruling, stopped the Federal Government, CBN, and commercial banks from implementing the February 10 deadline.

Following the ruling, Abubakar Malami, on behalf of the federal government, filed a preliminary objection to challenge the order of the Supreme Court.

Malami who spoke during an appearance on Arise News on Thursday, said the government will comply with the ruling until the order is set aside.

He faulted the order by the supreme court on the premise that the CBN was not joined in the suit that was filed by the governments of Kaduna, Kogi, and Zamfara states.
