Emefiele also expressed pleasure the Court rejected the P&ID’s application to increase the guarantee, which he noted was clearly intended to be a diversionary tactic and entirely misconceived.

CBN also stated that the release of the $200 million security deposit has swollen the country’s foreign reserve.
