“No desperate vote-seeking Nigerian politician genuinely cares about you. Their fight to keep all old currency notes as legal tender isn’t for you!
“ Let it just be that N200, N100, N50, N20, N10 and N5 are made available. It will be enough to satisfy the cash needs of every common man.

“ Guys chill let the elections finish. This fight isn’t aimed at punishing the common man. It’s aimed at delivering fair elections! Abeg make we not too vex. E go soon finish!”
