Keep spending old Naira notes, Tinubu will change policy if elected President – Governor
Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, has directed Traders in the State to continue spending the old Naira notes as legal tender for their everyday transactions.
The Governor stated this at a meeting with the Traders in the State, saying if Bola Tinubu, the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is elected, he will review the Naira redesign policy.
El-Rufai said, “Stop changing your money and tell everyone to stop taking money to banks. If you sell anything, accept the old note if it’s given to you. Stop saying it’s only the new notes that you will accept because your market will stop and that is what they want,” he said.
“Tell everyone in Kaduna who has the old notes to spend it and buy items. Tell every trader to accept the old notes.
“Nasir el-Rufai, Uba Sani, and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu promise you that if we (APC) are elected, this policy will be changed and everyone will be given sufficient time to change their money.
“Stop taking your money to banks, keep them with you. Nobody can make your money to become worthless. It is the law; nobody can do it.
“It’s just a matter of time; be patient. We have 18 days to the elections. Once the elections are over, you should expect what Asiwaju Bola Tinubu would say, which is the change of this policy.
“You should help us pass this message to relatives. Everyone should stop taking money to banks; continue trading with the old notes.”
