Tell APC leaders to release hoarded naira notes, PDP challenges Buhari

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to neutralize the hardship and pain which the people pass through to get the scarce new naira notes.

The PDP also demanded that stakeholders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) who included the presidential candidate of the party and the state’s governors to as a matter of emergency release the “hundreds of billions of new Naira notes reportedly intercepted and hoarded by them for vote buying purposes”.

The PDP made this revelation in a statement produced by the spokesperson of the party, Hon Debo Ologunagba.

“It is instructive to note that Mr. President in his address to the nation earlier today, acknowledged that the Naira redesign and swap policies are programmes of the APC administration which is also completely in control of the production and circulation of the new notes. It is therefore clear that the PDP has no part in the entire process.

“Our Party had earlier alerted on how APC leaders allegedly sabotaged the system and diverted the new Naira notes so as to create widespread social unrest to justify their plan to derail the 2023 general elections and truncate our democracy.

“The PDP had also exposed how APC governors are allegedly warehousing the new Naira notes in facilities in Lagos, Kano, Kogi, Kaduna, Imo and other States of the country for the purpose of vote buying in the Presidential election.

“In the same vein, our Party raised alarm on how the Tinubu/Shettima Campaign had orchestrated the current cash crunch as a strategy to cause crisis while inciting Nigerians to insurrection with the view to truncating the electoral process having come to the reality of the fact that the APC and its Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu have been rejected by Nigerians ahead of the polls,” the PDP’s statement partly read.

The main opposition party also said it expresses sympathy with the people of the country over the hardship brought to their doorsteps by the “selfish, vicious and anti-people APC leaders.

The party commended the courage of the people in the face of the “APC-induced suffering”.

“The threats and incitement to violence by the Tinubu Campaign cannot deter the people,” the party emphasized.

The PDP advised President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that the election is peaceful, fair, free, credible and transparent 2023 general elections as the people were set to approach the poll to cast their votes for the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku.
