Naira Redesign: Portable Drags Buhari: “You Have Scattered The Country”
Controversial President Muhammadu Buhari has come under fire from the Nigerian singer Portable for the country’s ongoing fuel and cash shortages.
According to The Site News, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBNintroduction )’s of the new notes and the gradual phase-out of the old notes over a period of weeks, which went into force in December 2022, caused tremendous suffering and annoyance for the majority of Nigerians in the nation.
Reacting to the development, Portable, in a video shared on his Instagram on Friday, lamented the fuel scarcity, hikes in food prices, and difficulty getting money in banks.
Portable further slammed those hoarding the new Naira notes, fuel attendants, POS workers and everyone making the country harder than it should.
Meanwhile, residents of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital on Friday took to the streets in protest over the non-availability of the new naira notes and the attendant hardship it has caused.
The protesters also lamented the lingering fuel scarcity in the entire country.
The protesters blocked many major roads during the protest and went around with placards lamenting the current situation.
The protest brought commercial activities to a standstill as popular roads such as the Iwo Road, Gate, and other roads in Oyo State were blocked by the angry protesters.
