The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has joined the list of persons criticising President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to redesign the naira.

Prime Business Africa had reported that President Buhari authorised the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to redesign the naira. He said the purpose was to reduce inflation, currency counterfeiting and excess cash in circulation. 

The decision to redesign naira has received commendation and knocks from several notable Nigerians, and Pastor Adeboye joined the latter during the November Holy Ghost Service, themed, ‘Let It Rain’. 

He said the naira isn’t worth anything, but the priority of the central bank is to beautify the currency. Adeboye told the congregation that nothing makes sense anymore, and Nigerians could develop hypertension if they don’t know how to laugh. 

“You know what’s going on in our country. It doesn’t even make sense anymore. Our naira now is not even worth the paper it is printed on. 

“And while people are hungry, trying to find enough money to buy bread to eat, our bosses are thinking of making the naira more beautiful, even if it can’t buy bread, at least, it will look beautiful. Oh Lord, have mercy. 

“We have problems in the land now. Things seem to be getting funnier and funnier. If you don’t learn to laugh in Nigeria now, you will develop hypertension.” Adeboye said.

Aside from the clergyman, Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State and Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, have spoken against the decision, stating it is affecting the value of naira. 

“They say we should all bring our naira and give it to them because they want to change it for us. Is that our priority now? 

“How does changing of currency reduce the price of food in the market? They say they want to change our currency and dollars are going higher every day. We can’t even see dollars again.” Obaseki had stated.
