The 36 State Governors in Nigeria have unanimously called on President Muhammadu Buhari to consider extending the deadline for swapping old Naira notes with new ones.

In a petition letter dated February 6, 2023, signed by Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, requested that the President revisit and reconsider the cashless policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria as well.

The Governors went further to advise that state governments be included in policymaking discussions to develop policies that would recognize and accommodate their peculiarities.

They urged Buhari to also consider putting up necessary infrastructure required to facilitate implementation within a reasonable time frame while introducing incentives to motivate usage of digital payment solutions, alongside initiating a strong awareness campaign to educate citizens on the essence and objectives of this policy.

Kingsley Ebinumutimipre Nelson said on Facebook:

“Corrupt politicians want to spend billions of naira they stock in their warehouses for this election, I stand with CBN and President Buhari on the deadline.”

Ezekiel Olawale said:

“Extension will create more problem for the poor masses. Because people are currently rejecting old note and there’s no way they will change their minds and begin to collect it back. Everyone is afraid of having Old note at hand now.”

Ezeugo Major Ikenna said:

“Why are governors so concerned about this old currency deadline? Were they concerned about the ASUU strike? Were they concerned about the END SARS saga?

“Whenever you see a toad jumping in broad daylight, know that something is after its life.

“Let’s not be deceived, these politicians are fighting for their personal interest and not for the poor masses. Let them go and pay salary arrears, pension and gratuity in their individual states.”

Femokan cleanhouse said:

“We don’t need an extension please. Nigerians have paid their dues, let go on with these reforms.

“When did our political leaders start showing love and empathy.”
