Lai Mohammed accuses opposition political parties of playing dirty politics with naira redesign policy

Minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed, has launched a stinging attack on some opposition poloticval parties, accusing them of preventing President Muhammadu Buhari from taking measures that would reduce the adverse effects of the naira redesign policy on Nigerians.

 

Speaking on Tuesday in Abuja, at the 23rd edition of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration scorecard series, Mohammed stated that the federal government was not unmindful of the problems and challenges being experienced by Nigerians because of the naira redesign and fuel supply problems.

 

He noted that the Buhari government was working out modalities to restore order to the two “critical enablers of economic activities” and would take added measures, where necessary, to reduce the pains of Nigerians.

 

Mohammed said it was bemusing and worrying that some opposition parties went to court to obtain an injunction restraining president Buhari nd the Central Bank of Nigeria from pushing forward the February 10 deadline for Nigerians to exchange their old notes for new ones.

 

“The court action came after a number of opposition parties threatened to boycott the 2023 general elections if the deadline was extended,” said Mohammed.

 

“These curious actions by the parties concerned are clear evidence that the opposition has turned this whole issue into a political game, preferring to make Nigerians suffer more on the altar of an unconscionable political gamesmanship.

 

“Or how else can one explain the fact that these unscrupulous opposition parties do not want any action that could reduce the pains being experienced by Nigerians”, Lai Mohammed rhetorically asked.
