Cash Crisis: Some APC Govs Linked to Printing of Fake Naira Notes to Buy Votes
Following earlier reports that the Nigerian Police has uncovered a criminal ring printing counterfeit note in Kurudu area of Abuja. Danjuma Isah who picks up the money from the said location has been arrested. During interrogation, he mentioned that the counterfeit currency is handed over to a certain Abdullahi Sabo who works closely with the APC governor’s forum.
Nonetheless, it will not come as a surprise to many Nigerians that these suspects mentioned that it was some bigwigs in the APC that funded their act. It was disclosed that it was Dapo Abiodun and Nasir El-Rufai that sponsored the printing of fake naira currency. Owing to their political self interest, these APC governors are seeking a free reign of political lawlessness and electoral malpractice during the elections.
In a video that went viral on the Internet, an agent of the the Ogun state governor, Mr. Dapo Abiodun was seen sharing Old naira wrapped in envelopes, which had the governor’s pictures on them. It was reported that agent urged the recipients of the envelope to re-elect the governor in the forthcoming gubernatorial election. The agent was captured in the video, saying that the governor was coming to the banks in Ogun state to ensure they accept the old naira notes given to them by Ogun state residents. Governor Dapo Abiodun also made threats to shut down banks in Ogun state that refused to accept the old naira notes as a legal tender.
The governor of Kaduna state, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai on the other hand is going ballistic and it is not strange that he was mentioned as one of the people that masterminded the printing of the fake naira notes. He had a press conference, where he addressed residents of Kaduna about the Issue of the naira notes, by stating that the old naira notes remains a legal tender till the Supreme Court gives its final judgment on the matter.
We hope to get more information from the men of the Nigerian police force before the Saturday presidential elections.
