2023: Aisha Buhari goes against husband, rolls out requests
Aisha Buhari takes a different position against her husband, Buhari over the over bearing money policy to support tinubu’s stance:
*old And New Naira notes remain valid till the end of 2023
*suspend bank transfer charges
*on-board fintech to support the banking system
*mobilize banks, ensure adequate naira suppl
*implement public enlightenment campaign and
*Create an action committee to bridge note supply
The first lady who left the country for Dubai for years failed to talk about continued fuel scarcity which on the other hand, has contributed to inflation in the country’s economy.
Aisha disclosed her position in a post shared on her social media timelines on Wednesday.
She however called on Nigerians to vote for the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the coming elections to kick off on 25th February.
Recall Nigerians have faced a hostile system following the money lite policy initiated by Nigeria’s apex financial institution, the Central Bank under the watch of Godwin Emefiele.
In the course of rolling out and implementing the policy which appears too short to many, the Governor, Emefiele redesigned 200, 500, and 1000 notes respectively.
This has since caused disagreement between the leading party, APC, and the independent financial institution, CBN, following the stoppage of old notes.
Some of the political leaders who appear not friendly with the new structure urged president Mohammadu Buhari to allow both old and new notes to exist till the end of 2023.
Moreso, CBN ignores the call by the supreme court to permit both notes till 15th February, warning the 10th February for the old notes deadline stands.
CBNs new policy targets to stop vote buying in the coming elections and is openly welcomed by poor Nigerians. Efforts to accomplish the policy seem to be sabotaged by commercial banks.
In several reports, the lower banks were apprehended to had hid the new notes issued to circulate to the masses.
