Written by Olarotimi Oshin on March 15, 2023
Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in Nigeria have told President Muhammadu Buhari that he cannot exonerate himself from the current naira crisis and the suffering it has brought on the masses.
According to the CSOs, even when the minister of finance, Zainab Ahmed, said she was not aware of the policy, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor Godwin Emefiele said President Muhammadu Buhari gave the directives.
Royal Times reports that the CSOs were reacting to a recent statement by the presidency absolving the president from blame at the hardship the naira redesign policy had brought on Nigerians.
Leader of TMG, TI, and CISLAC, Awwal Musa Rafsanjani, said President Buhari must take the blame for the failure and the hardship imposed on Nigerians as a result of the naira policy noting that the naira policy only affected the poor killing small scale businesses .
