The senator representing Kogi West senatorial district under the All Progressive Congress, Smart Adeyemi, has accused the presidential candidate from the PDP party, Atiku Abubakar, his running mate Ifeanyi Okowa, and CBN governor, Godwin Emefiele as the brains behind the naira scarcity as a result of the naira redesign policy.

Speaking with journalists at his Maitama residence in Abuja, the lawmaker claimed that Emefiele and Okowa who are cousins conspired with Atiku Abubakar to unleash untold hardship on the good people of Nigeria with the sole purpose of frustrating the presidential candidate of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu by making Nigerians vote against the APC party in the forthcoming elections.

The Senator while addressing journalists at his residence said:

“Ahead of Presidential and National Assembly elections, Emefiele connived with Atiku in unleashing the hardship on Nigerians for the sole purpose of making Nigerians vote against candidates of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

“The Presidential candidate of APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu was the main target of the crisis to pave the way for the emergence of Atiku and Okowa as President and Vice President of Nigeria but their plan has failed.”

He further stated that since Emefile didn’t succeed in his presidential ambition, he is trying to ensure his cousin, Okowa and Atiku win the forthcoming elections.

“The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria is the architect of the crisis facing the country from the Naira redesign policy.

“He came up with the policy after failing to realise his presidential ambition last year. As good as the policy may be, why implement it during the election period? He asked.

“Nigerians have through the crisis known those standing for the people and those happy for their sufferings. Tinubu is with the people and will be overwhelmingly voted for come Saturday during the presidential election he stated.

“Aside from their plotted agenda through the policy, Atiku is not supposed to contest this election in the spirit of fairness, equity and justice as rightly considered by the APC northern governors.

“As far as those rooting for the unity and oneness of Nigerians are concerned across the various political parties, the presidential contest on Saturday is between Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of the APC and Peter Obi of the Labour Party since power is expected to shift to the southern part of the country.”
