New Naira Policy Has Corrupt Politicians Outraged – Secondus

According to Prince Uche Secondus, a former national chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, the push for the delay of the deadline for the spending of old naira notes is being driven by corrupt politicians and vote-buyers.

Additionally, he said that some politicians may have kept millions of old naira notes in their residences to use as bribes to influence votes during the election.

Secondus, who spoke over the phone with Punch newspaper cautioned Nigerians about those who claimed to be fighting for the common good.

His words: “If there is any policy of President Buhari that deserves to be supported, it is the new naira policy. Though we all know that the President has not done well since he assumed office, the idea behind the new naira policy deserves to be supported.

“It will rid the country of corruption because those who use cash to bribe voters will not be allowed to do so. Then, the policy will also help the banks to trace the movement of money across accounts.

“We should not think that the politicians, who have refused to speak on fuel scarcity before, strikes by university lecturers, high cost of living, non-payment of salaries as and when due, lack of electricity and others, and are talking now are friends of Nigerians.

“They are not. They are merely protecting their interest and that of their political parties, which is not in the interest of the country.”

Secundus urged Nigerians to back President Muhammadu Buhari in his efforts to purge the nation of corrupt politicians and election tamperers.
