Seven days too Long to fix Currency Crisis – Senator replies Buhari

By Starrys Obazei | February 6, 2023

Senator Smart Adeyemi, an All Progressives Congress, APC, lawmaker of Kogi State, said seven days are too long for President Muhammadu Buhari to fix the biting currency crisis.

Adeyemi, a former president of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, made this disclosure to newsmen in Abuja.

He was reacting to President Buhari’s comment on Friday where he stated that he needed seven days to address the challenges occasioned by the Central Bank of Nigeria’s implementation of the naira redesign policy.

“There is no room for anybody to want to run Nigeria into trouble. We are gradually getting over the problem of PMS scarcity, but this currency affects most of us. People need access to money. Do you know how people are suffering? Adeyemi asked.

He continued: “Mr. President, thanks for your concern, but seven days make a long time. It’s like a woman in a labor room, and you said she should continue labor for seven days.

“Mr. President, not all women in the labor room will survive seven days. This problem is like a woman in the labor room, Mr. President. This is how the situation is. Nigerians are suffering. The majority who are poor are languishing. Mr. President, you have done your best whether anybody likes it or not. Apart from the insecurity that has blundered other achievements, Buhari, you have done your best.”
