“It Wasn’t Meant To Cause Hardship” – Buhari Apologises Over Naira Redesign Policy

Muhammadu Buhari,  President of Nigeria has apologized to the people of Nigeria.
He apologized for the policy of overhauling the naira, saying it wasn’t put in place to cause trouble.

In October 2022, Godwin Emefiele, Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), announced plans to redesign the N200, N500, and N1000 banknotes.

The apex bank has set February 10 as the deadline for using the old naira banknotes, which has led to a scarcity of the currency.

In a video clip posted to Twitter by All Progressive Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate Uba Sani in Kaduna on Thursday, Buhari said the policy is aimed at boosting the economy.

“I apologise to you for the hardship caused by the change of the naira. It was done to boost the economy of the country, not to cause hardship to anybody,” the president said.

Buhari begged Kaduna residents to vote for Sani, senator representing Kaduna central, as the governor of the state.

“First of all, I want to once again thank you for the confidence you have in me by electing me president on the platform of our party, the APC,” Buhari said.

“I want to use this opportunity to inform you that Uba Sani is our candidate for the governorship election in Kaduna state. I am begging you to vote for him and all APC candidates for the house of assembly to help him work.

“Uba is a leading member of this journey. We worked together in the senate and he demonstrated capacity and competence. He will perform better than expected.

“Kaduna is home to me. Therefore, I urge you to vote for Uba Sani and all our APC candidates for the state assembly.”
