Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State has said that the untimely implementation of Naira swap policy, was deliberately done by Godwin Emeifiele, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor as a fighting back strategy for failing to get presidential ticket under the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

He said this during electioneering campaign rally, held at Tsanyawa, Sunday, where he presented gubernatorial and deputy gubernatorial candidates,  alongside senatorial candidate and other candidates.

This was contained in a statement by Abba Anwar, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor of Kano State and made available to Prime Time News on Sunday.

Ganduje emphasized that, “The CBN Governor is only doing this to cause confusion in the forthcoming elections for no just reason.

“He has not been in good mood for long, because he failed to secure Presidential ticket on the platform of our great party, the APC.”

The governor revealed that Kano state government and APC in the state are totally against the action of the CBN Governor.

He said, “Currency redesign is done across the globe, but not in the way we are witnessing in our country. The timing is wrong, the deadline given is very wrong and deliberate.”

While explaining measures that will be taken by the state to cushion the effects of hardship caused by Naira swap development, he reveals that, “We will summon Bank managers very soon to interrogate the shortage of new Naira notes in banks. 

“They should come over and explain to us, why our people are still suffering over this issue of Naira Swap. And I will go to them individually to supervise what is happening and why.

“We have a plan in the pipeline to start distributing palliatives very soon across all the 44 local governments, to cushion the effect of the hardship caused by the CBN Governor, to our people.”

At the palaces of the District Heads of Kunchi and Tsanyawa local governments, he urged community leaders to create awareness within their jurisdiction to let people know that, “The hardship people are facing is singlehandedly caused by the CBN Governor, to purposely cause confusion in our democratic process.”
