In order to discuss the lack of new naira notes in the nation, President Muhammadu Buhari met with Godwin Emefiele, governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), on Tuesday.

The Site News reports that the Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) and Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal; and the Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum (PGF) and Governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu, were also present at the meeting.

Also at the meeting held at the State House, Abuja, were the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa; Chief of Defence Staff, Gen Lucky Irabor; and the Chief of Staff to the President, Ibrahim Gambari.

It was gathered that hitherto to the private meeting, the President was said to have originally scheduled a meeting with the Nigerian Governors’ Forum.

The President was said to have cancelled the meeting because of the court order forbidding the government from extending the February 10, 2023 deadline for the swapping of three old naira notes.

It would be recalled that the President had met with the Governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on February 3, where the governors had asked him to allow both the old and new notes co-circulate to ease the cash crunch recorded across the country.

The Site News reports that the scarcity of new naira notes has resulted in protests in Oyo, Edo, Ogun, Ondo and Delta states.
