Naira redesign: Ojukwu didn’t do half of what Gov El-Rufai has done – Omokri


A former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has expressed shock that Governor Nasiru El-Rufai of Kaduna State is still moving around freely and still holding onto his office after daring to thwart a policy of the Federal government.


In his continued disobedient to the Federal Government’s directive to keep the old N500 and N1000 notes out of circulation, El-Rufai on Sunday, directed all ministries, departments and agencies to continue to receive payment in all denominations, until the court verdict


Muyiwa Adekeye, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the governor, in a statement said individuals can make payment using all denominations including 1,000 500 Naira denominations


This is coming a few days after El-Rufai asked residents of the state to continue using the old naira notes.


His directive is coming after President Muhammadu Buhari said in his national broadcast that both the N1,000 and N5,000 old Naira notes are no longer legal tender.


However, in his broadcast to the people of Kaduna State, El-rufai urged them to stand up strongly for democracy, peace and national unity.


And Reno Omokri in a tweet on Sunday said, “Did Ojukwu do up to what El-Rufai had done before General Gowon’s Military Government moved against him?


“Ojukwu didn’t issue the Biafran Pound until January 29, 1968. Yet, Nigeria moved against him. Why is Nigeria my country not moving against El-Rufai for treason?”

  1. Why are not advocating it already? You want an igboman to say it so u can say another thing against the most hated tribe?

  2. Before now,the same man talked about cabals in Also rock,which is a clear evidence of what is keeping MNK in DSS,
    Is this El Rufi above the law?
