New Naira: El-Rufai’s Comment Treasonable – Datti Baba-Ahmed

He argued that there is only one authority in Nigeria which is the president.

Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai has been lambasted by the vice presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Datti Baba-Ahmed over comment he made about President Muhammadu Buhari’s Thursday broadcast.

Baba-Ahmed said El-Rufai’s comment on the naira redesign policy is treasonable.

Recall that the Kaduna State Governor in a state broadcast on Thursday faulted the Buhari on his directive to re-introduce just the old N200 banknote as part of measures to curb the cash crunch in the country.

El-Rufai, who said the old N1,000 and N500 are still legal tenders in his state, stated that the aim of the naira redesign is to scuttle the general elections in order to allow an interim government led by a retired army general

However, speaking during a press conference in Abuja on Friday, according to Channels Television, the LP vice presidential candidate said the governor’s comment, amounts to treason and wondered why the presidency is silent

He argued that there is only one authority in Nigeria which is the president and wonders how a sub-national can counter the directive of the president.
