Nasir El-Rufai, the governor of Kaduna State, has slammed Godwin Emefiele.
He accused Emefiele, the governor of the Central Bank, of acting in connivance with the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to help them win the 2023 general election.
El-Rufai reacted on Friday following the Supreme Court’s decision, which nullified the federal government naira redesign policy.
The Kaduna State governor said Emefiele deceived the president and gave him wrong information.
He also said the people behind the naira redesign policy were those who wanted to run for president in his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, but they could not make it.
”First, let me say this was the policy of the PDP. Emefiele was appointed the CBN governor by the PDP, originally. So let us not forget where he came from. They are the ones that cooked this policy together to help the PDP win the 2023 general election, and he deceived the president into thinking that it is possible to withdraw trillions of naira in circulation and reprint everything in three months. No country in the history of the world has done it.
”He deceived the president and gave the president wrong information and the Attorney General, unfortunately, supported this policy and we know why. Go and look at their antecedents, these are people who wanted to run for president in our party but they did not make it. This is their revenge plan,” El- Rufai said.
