The Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has accused the Central Bank of Nigeria of causing “COVID-23” with its Naira redesign policy.
Speaking during the distribution of palliatives at the government house on Monday, February 20, Ganduje claimed that Kano residents are the most affected by the “unfortunate development”.
“We didn’t invite this situation, neither did we pray for it. We don’t welcome it at all. We gave similar palliatives during the COVID-19 days,” Ganduje said.
“Today our citizens are being faced with COVID-23 caused by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
“We earlier thought it was a simple disease, but unfortunately it turned out to be a very serious virus.
“This virus which came from the CBN has affected all our commercial banks, our POS, our ATM machines, and all other things associated with this.
“We will not stop blaming the CBN for this economic blunder. We love our people. Therefore, anything that will disturb their well-being must be rejected.”
