Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano has alleged that those behind the annulment of the June 12, 1993 presidential election are regrouping and dangerously masquerading in the prevailing crisis generated by the naira policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria.

The governor said the group’s latest attempt is camouflaging in unknown political parties exploiting legal instruments to bar the Federal Government from further extending the deadline for the new Naira notes.

In a statement by the state commissioner for information, Muhammad Garba, the governor claimed that the elements are working hard to scuttle the nation’s hard-earned democracy.

Mr Ganduje was reacting to an interim injunction by a Federal High Court in Abuja stopping the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, from extending the 10-day deadline for the currency swap.

He also claimed that the unknown political parties were also colluding with the Peoples Democratic Party, “to deliberately thwart the nation’s hard-earned democracy by imposing harsh policies calculated to weaken the masses”.

“It is unfortunate that the CBN and its collaborators are insisting unnecessarily on the imposition of an unreasonable time frame for the old Naira notes to cease to be legal tender, in total refutation of the obvious national dearth in the necessary technological infrastructure for the process.

“The rigid insistence on the implementation of these harsh, inhuman and insensitive cash policies to a point of neglecting their widespread rejection by the vast majority of Nigerians including the National Assembly and all state governors, is an ominous agenda for the undermining of the nation and consequent scurrying of a smooth transition to a freely and fairly elected successive administration,” Mr Ganduje added.
