A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress(APC) ,Chief Segun Ajibulu has said that the refusal of the People’s Democratic Party(PDP) Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to support the extension of the deadline given by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) for Naira swap has vindicated the APC’s standardbearer’ s position. .
Speaking with journalists in Ado-Ekiti on Sunday,Ajibulu said it was rather unfortunate that Atiku, who was desirous of leading the country could be so wicked and insensitive to current hardship being experienced by the Nigerians.
Recall that the APC Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, at a rally in Abeokuta,Ogun State capital alleged that the current Scarcity of fuel and currency notes were orchestrated by some cabals to punish Nigerians with a view to scoring cheap political points .
The leader of the SouthWest Professionals argued that if the PDP Flagbearer could be so insensitive to the draconian policy of the CBN ,even when it had brought the economy to its kneels, it would be dangerous for Nigerians to entrust him(Atiku) with power.
With the poor defense from Atiku,the APC chieftain said Nigerians were no longer in doubt as to know the identities of those who put them in the current economic hardship
Chief Ajibulu,therefore called on President Muhammadu Buhari to prevail on the CBN governor to extend the deadline to ,attest six months inorder to end the needless agonies of Nigerians .
Ajibulu coordinator of Tinubu Campaign groups in Ekiti also commended the APC governors for their prompt and sincere intervention on the matter by demanding further extension of the swap deadline at their meeting with President Buhari.
” Only a clear enemy of the masses would oppose the extension of the deadline in this precarious situation .Atiku’s position shows he is not in tune with current realities, even when critical stakeholders in the North and South have expressed their reservations on the policy and poor style of implementation.” Ajibulu said .
The APC stalwart also demanded a comprehensive publication of the records of the new notes in circulation and its disbursement.
” Again the PDP and indeed its Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar have show their colour by supporting anti-people policy of the CBN.
” The opposition of the former Vice President ,Atiku to possible of the deadline for the Naira swap is not only wicked but condemnable and insensitive. It shows the PDP is working in cahoots with the CBN to inflict more pains on Nigerians.
” This callous stance further corroborated the verdict of former President Olusegun Obasanjo on the questionable character ,desperation and corrupt tendency of the PDP Presidential candidate .Nigerians would not repeat the mistake of entrusting PDP and Atiku with power .Nigerians are wiser now,were it not the alarm raised by Tinubu on the evil machinations of the PDP many Nigerians would still be in tbe dark as to what was going in the economy .
” Their evil plot has been exposed and the APC and Tinubu are waxing stronger and by the Special grace of God ,we are winning the February 25 Presidential poll.
