New Naira Policy Has Nothing To Do With Fighting Corruption’ – Wike Tells BuhariGovernor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has called for the review of the naira swap policy introduced by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
Wike on Friday told President Muhammadu Buhari that the policy does not in any way fight corruption or vote buying as intended but has brought untold hardship on Nigerians.
Speaking during his address at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign rally at Okrika Local Government Area (LGA) in the State, Wike reminded Buhari that the business of governance does not include inflicting hardship on the people.
Recall the CBN in December 2022, rolled out re-designed N200, N500 and N1,000 notes and set a deadline for Nigerians to replace their old notes with the new notes.
However, anguish and pain has been the portion of Nigerians owing to the scarcity of the new notes.
