Conference of Nigerian Political Parties Chairmen and candidates for the 2023 Election slated for February 25, have rejected alleged plans by some people to force the Central Bank of Nigeria to suspend the ongoing Naira Redesign Policy.
The political parties’ chairmen and their candidates stated this in Abuja today at a joint news conference addressed by their Spokesperson, Kenneth Udeze, who is also the Chairman of Action Alliance.
Udeze said the political parties were backing the policy because it would improve the credibility of the elections, also threatened to pull out of the election if the apex bank was forced to succumb to pressure, blackmail and suspend the policy.
The Politics parties also claimed to be in possession of credible security reports which indicated that there is a plot to instigate violent disturbances to provoke civil unrest aimed at forcing the CBN to postpone the policy
