The Kano State Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has shut down Wellcare Supermarket for refusing to collect the old naira notes.
The governor instructed Baffa Babba Dan’agundi, the Acting Chairman of Kano State Consumer Protection Council, to shut down the supermarket.
Dan’agundi, who made this disclosure after shutting down the supermarket, said legal action would be taken against the supermarket.
Wellcare is a prominent supermarket that sells food products and drugs among other provisions stuffs.
The Daily Reality gathered that the closure order was a result of its refusal to accept the old naira notes from costumers.
It can be recalled that the Kano State Government instructed supermarkets and other marketers to continue accepting the old notes.
The Acting Chairman also warned other traders in Kano against refusing to collect the old naira notes.
He added that any supermarket caught refusing the old notes will be dealt with decisively.
