He spoke in Hausa. He urged Nigerians to stay calm and be patient for the election to be over.
Gov. Nasiru El’Rufai addressed the people of Kaduna on the current money crisis. He said the people should keep transacting with the old notes in order for them to be able to survive the harsh economic challenges.
He said “if you are given stop insisting on collecting only the new notes; your business will crumble. This is what they want” referring to some forces said to be against the APC candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
He asked the citizens to reach out to their friends and family to stop taking their old notes to the bank urging them to hold on to their notes as they are still legal tenders.
He said no one can render the old notes otherwise for it is the law.
He promised that any indigene of Kaduna still in possession of the old notes should not be afraid being legal tender from now till the next four four years if APC is elected.
