…shelves meeting with govs forum
Ray of hope for Nigerians as President Muhammadu Buhari privately meet with the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Aminu Tambuwal; and the Chairman of the Progressives Governors’ Forum, Atiku Bagudu over the scarcity of the three naira notes.
Also in attendance at the meeting was the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele; the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa; as well as the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen Lucky Irabor.
The meeting held at the President’s office at the State House, Abuja.
The President was said to have cancelled it in view of the court order forbidding government from extending the February 10, 2023 deadline for the swapping of three old naira notes.
Sources within the Presidency also affirmed that the President was wary about the possible perception of disregard for lawful orders.
None of the participants at the meeting agreed to speak to the media.
Recall that due to the newly introduced cashless policy of the CBN, Nigerians have going through hardship as suddenly Naira became very scarce beyond the reach of the masses.
