Former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Lamido Sanusi, has claimed that governors are not happy with the new naira policy because they will not be able to buy votes during the forthcoming elections.
Sanusi made this known while advising would-be voters to disregard the governors’ and other politicians’ opposition to the naira swap.
He said: “It is the politicians’ plan to leverage the people’s poor conditions to buy their votes during the election period. That is why they are suffering the most from the naira redesign policy as they will not be able to use the money stolen over all these years to buy the people’s votes, bribe the police, the judges.”
“Therefore, the naira redesign has affected their plans for the coming election since they cannot bring the money to the open for swapping. Their criticism of the policy is not for the good of Nigerians but for themselves.”
He noted that “this election is not about who has more money, political influence, or thuggery. It is about ensuring good governance.”
