Politicians Fighting To Keep Old Notes Selfish – Okon Lagos

Nollywood Actor and comedian Ime Bishop Umoh aka Okon Lagos has argued the fight by politicians for the old N1,000 and N500 notes to continue as legal tender is fuelled by self-interest.

He argued the politicians, who he described as ‘desperate vote-seeking’ cared about themselves but not the current suffering of the masses due to the Naira Crisis.

According to him, these ‘vote-buying’ politicians are in possession of the N1000 and N500 notes which the president, Muhammadu Buhari during his nationwide broadcast on Thursday morning declared were no longer legal tender.

He explained the naira redesign policy and everything else that has followed with it was not aimed at punishing the common man but to deliver free and fair elections.

 “No desperate vote-seeking Nigerian politician genuinely cares about you. Their fight to keep all old currency notes as legal tender isn’t for you He wrote.

“Let it just be that N200, N100, N50, N20, N10 and N5 are made available. It will be enough to satisfy the cash needs of every common man. “

“What these vote buying politicians have are the exact old currency notes that are no longer legal tender (N1000 and N500).

“Guys chill let the elections finish. This fight isn’t aimed at punishing the common man. It’s aimed at delivering a fair elections! Abeg make we not too vex. E go soon finish!”
