Enaira Payment Solutions Limited (RC 508500) has been in operation since the 7th of April, 2004, according to the Notification from the solicitor. The company is registered in the classes 36 and 42 of the Companies Act.

It asserted that the introduction of the eNaira represents a threat to his client’s trademark and demonstrates deliberate infringement of his client’s trademark. The warnings further stated that his client is now subject to damages, loss of business, and loss of goodwill as a result of the situation.

As a result, our client has filed a suit in the Federal High Court in Suit No: FHC/AB/CS/113/2021 between ENAIRA PAYMENT SOLUTIONS LIMITED vs CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA to seek an injunction, including an order prohibiting CBN from proceeding with the launch scheduled for October 1, 2021, according to the Notice.

“In the interim, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is now advised to halt and desist from using or purporting to use the name eNaira for its product or in any other way,” the Notice stated.
