The governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, states that the All Progressive Congress’ (APC) popularity has been harmed by fuel and naira scarcity.
Akeredolu begged President Muhammadu Buhari to give the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr Godwin Emefiele, the appropriate instructions to reverse the naira redesign policy right away.
He said this while meeting with members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), led by Seyi Tinubu, the son of the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in Akure, the capital of Ondo state.
He said, “We have a problem we are facing in this country today. Our rating as a party is not that favourable.
“Let’s not deceive ourselves. Must it be now that we will have this financial policy?
“How? Fuel and everything? Things are not easy. This policy is not right at this time. It should be reversed.
“Reserve it and tell CBN that we are reversing it. Let old, and new notes co-exist.”
So far, there have been reports of Nigerians taking to the streets to protest the scarcity of naira notes, leading to the burning down of some bank branches in Delta State.
