A meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) ostensibly arranged to discuss the ongoing cash swap failed to hold on Tuesday.
The president was said to have cancelled it in view of the court order forbidding the government from extending the February 10, 2023 deadline for the swapping of old Naira notes for the redesigned ones.
Presidency sources affirmed that the President was wary about the possible perception of disregard for lawful orders should anything be done to the policy at this time.
Despite the cancellation of the meeting, the Chairman of the NGF and Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal and the Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum and Governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu, had a private meeting with the president in his office.
It was not immediately clear what they discussed as none of them spoke to waiting reporters.
