Buhari mum as APC governors appeal for compromise on Naira redesign


By Aminu Kutama

The All Progressives Congress (APC) governors have appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to allow both the old and new naira notes to co-exist to ease the suffering of Nigerians.

Malam Nasir El-Rufai, the Governor of Kaduna State, said the request was made to the president when the APC governors met with him on Friday.

The Kaduna governor added that the president did not decline or approve the request.

The meeting was held at the council chambers in the presidential villa in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to deliberate on the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) policy on the new naira notes.

The apex bank had initially fixed January 31 as the deadline for the use of old naira notes.

But it shifted the deadline as many Nigerians could not access the new N200, N500, and N1000 notes.
