President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday met with the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Godwin Emeifele; the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, and state governors.
The state governors were represented by the Chairman of the Nigeria Governor’s Forum and Sokoto State governor, Aminu Tambuwal and Chairman of the APC Governor’s Forum and Kebbi State governor, Atiku Bagudu
Others in the meeting included the Secretary to the Government of the Federation SGF, Boss Mustapha, and Chief of Staff to the President, Ibrahim Gambari.
DAILY NIGERIAN reports that the meeting might not be unconnected with the ongoing scarcity of the new naira notes across the country.
Recall that the President had sought a seven-day grace to be able to resolve the hardship being faced by Nigerians following the scarcity of the new Naira notes.
The apex bank had fixed February 10 as the deadline for the old naira notes to cease to be a legal tender in the country.
But many Nigerians have been calling for an extension of the deadline due to the unavailability of the redesigned notes.
Nigeria Government don’t care about us, they only care about them self and there family. No job, no money, no food and them still add more problem to us. Them redesign Naira notes because they want to punish there colleagues and they forgot that there colleagues still get the power and connection to get the new naira note. We the masses are suffering because of there act in changing the naira note. The masses are dying of hunger, the masses are suffering to get there little money from there own bank account. I just can’t say I hate Nigeria my country. I feel so bitter tying this. God help us all 🙏
