2023: Tinubu Behind Cash Hoarding In Nigerian Banks— PDP

2023: Tinubu Behind Cash Hoarding In Nigerian Banks— PDP | Daily Report Nigeria

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu of being responsible for the current naira scarcity in Nigeria.

The PDP decried the excruciating pain and distress being faced by Nigerians arising from their inability to access the new naira notes.

It insisted that the crisis was due to nefarious activities of corrupt APC leaders who were compromising the system to intercept and hoard the new banknotes for their selfish vote-buying plans ahead of the February 25, 2023 Presidential election.

Nigerians recall the widely-applauded patriotic intervention by Atiku Abubakar that led to the extension of the initial cash swap deadline; an accomplishment which not only demonstrates Atiku Abubakar’s commitment to the wellbeing of Nigerians but also his experience, capacity and integrity to stand for the people and get the system to work for the public good.

“Our Party is however saddened that the cash crunch had persisted due to the sabotage of corrupt APC leaders, including the APC Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who are alleged to have masterminded the intercepting and hoarding of the new notes for their selfish agenda.

“The PDP is therefore disgusted by the hypocrisy being exhibited by the APC presidential candidate, who, despite his alleged role in the cash scarcity is pointing accusing fingers at others and seeking to exploit the ugly situation to incite unsuspecting Nigerians with the view to disrupting the 2023 general elections.

“Asiwaju Tinubu and his apologists in the APC are aware that he has no chance in the election and thus are devising all manner of shenanigans to overheat the polity, derail the electoral process and force an undemocratic situation upon our country.

“Nigerians now know the truth and hold Asiwaju Tinubu and the APC directly responsible for the anguish they have been subjected to in the face of this excruciating cash scarcity; another reason they will deal Tinubu a humiliating blow with their votes at the February 25, 2023 Presidential election.”

The PDP hence called on President Buhari to protect Nigerians by going after these felonious APC leaders as well as the saboteurs in the system who were reportedly working with the APC Presidential Campaign to mop up cash meant for distribution to our citizens.

PDP said:

Our party stands with Nigerians; the artisans, traders, drivers, ‘keke’ and ‘okada’ riders, labourers, food vendors, students and all hard-working citizens at this time of distress.”

The PDP urged the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to be mindful of the sufferings being experienced daily by Nigerians and asked that the bank took urgent measures to arrest the unbearable situation by ensuring adequate protection and effective monitoring of cash distribution process.

It said:

“Among other measures, the CBN should immediately provide dedicated mobile banks and special cash points in areas of need particularly in the markets and rural areas of our country. Using such facilities to dispense low amounts in markets and rural areas will drastically reduce the pain and anguish being experienced by Nigerians at this time.”
