New Naira Notes: Election Riggers Pushing CBN For Extension — Atiku

Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate, has urged the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to keep the old Naira regime deadline in place after February 10.

This information was revealed in a statement the Atiku campaign council sent on Wednesday.

According to Atiku, vote-riggers want to force the CBN to push the deadline back till after the general elections on February 25 and March 11 in order to fulfill their goals.


The former vice president requested that the apex bank promptly review the steps it has taken to ensure the circulation of the new naira notes and lessen the current hardship being experienced by Nigerians, particularly those who live in rural areas.

Part of the statement read: “There should be no further postponement on the new naira regime after the expiration of the February 10 deadline.

“The vote riggers are seeking to push the CBN to extend till after the election when they would have achieved their evil plots.

“The CBN and the Presidency should be steadfast. The merits of the new naira policy far outweigh the little inconvenience we are experiencing.”
