In a post via his verified Twitter handle on Tuesday, the former minister claimed Emefiele wants to cause a crisis, provoke a people’s uprising, and pave the way for an Interim Government.
He also alleged that the CBN governor has no plan to release enough new naira notes and intends to starve the people of cash and drive them to rage out of frustration.
He wrote, ”Emefiele has weaponized the CBN and is an enemy of democracy. The policy of cancelling old notes must be cancelled until AFTER the election and then done lawfully. He wants to cause a crisis, provoke a people’s uprising, derail our democracy and pave the way for an ING.
”He has NO plans to release enough new naira notes any time soon. He wants to STARVE the people of cash & drive them to rage out of frustration. This is not about politics but about stoking up protest & revolution. This is subversion & destabilisation. He must be stopped & caged!”
