Naira redesign: What Tinubu should do to Emefiele when he assumes office – Smart Adeyemi
The senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Smart Adeyemi, has suggested that the president-elect, Bola Tinubu should question the governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Godwin Emefiele, when he assumes office.
The lawmaker, who stated this in an interview with Channels Television, alleged that the CBN’s policy to redesign Naira notes was a calculated attempt to frustrate Tinubu’s presidential ambition.
He said the apex bank’s governor should be made to explain the real motives behind the policy that caused controversy in the country earlier in the year.
He said, “The calculated attempt then, was to stop APC from winning the election. They said they were redesigning the Naira, so where are the redesigned notes?
“Gradually, they are out of circulation. If the judiciary had kept quiet, Nigeria would have gone into chaos.
“If I were Tinubu, when I assume office, I will call in Emefiele and others to come and explain what happened and what was the reason behind the redesigning of Naira notes”.
