Kano Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has no kind words for President Muhammadu Buhari after he flouted a Supreme court ruling that halted his cash swap policy.
Ganduje who addressed the People of Kano Thursday night said Buhari by coming with the naira redesign, three months to end of his tenure simply wanted to set the nations on fire so that democracy could be truncated.
He said: “In the first term, nothing of great importance can be pointed out as his achievement, same as in his second term. So, why is he bringing out all these policies now? why not seven years ago? He just wants to collapse the party that produced him. “How could he care for Nigerians and then propose such a policy as the naira redesign? Why not seven years ago or after the election? This shows he is not a good leader; if he is, he would not remain calm seeing people setting properties on fire out of frustration.
“This is why we went to the court and stand against them because we know that their motive is to prevent free and fair elections. By God’s grace, all of their efforts will be in vain because we will reverse all these policies as soon as we win the election.” “People’s businesses are suffering, and you are asking for more time. I’ve ordered the closure of any supermarket that rejects old naira notes. Supreme Court recognizes the notes, and you are asking banks not to accept the notes. Who is more powerful between the Court and them?”
Also, Kaduna state governor Nasir El-Rufai said the Buhari administration was working towards a military coup in Nigeria, saying an army general had already been pegged down to lead an interim government when Mr Buhari’s tenure ends on May 31. In his reaction All Progressives Congress presidential candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu told the State governors to ignore Buhari’s order, enforce use of old naira notes nationwide “All friendly governors must replicate Kaduna address immediately to assure the integrity of the SC and rule of law for the local & international community.”
“What will be tragic for Nigeria…is if there is a repeat of the 2011 widespread post-election violence.”
