The just announced CBN cashless policy, even with the best of intentions, is discriminatory as it targets selected States- Lagos, Ogun, Kano, Abia, Anambra, Rivers and FCT – as pilot states, with no obvious statutory justification. Such a policy, which is punitive to affected states and preferential to unaffected states, undermine the sovereign equality of the 36 States. It should either be applied uniformly, or suspended immediately. As it stands, it is an egregious public policy inimical to business and commercial interests of the affected states. [SCPT]
