Former federal lawmaker, Shehu Sani has said that there will be more attacks from the All Progressives Congress (APC) governors on President Muhammadu Buhari.
The president in the early hours of Thursday morning announced that 1000 and 500 naira notes were no longer legal tender in the country while 200 naira notes would phase out in April 10, 2023.
Following the President’s directive, some APC governors have shown their displeasure with the development.
The Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje had berated Buhari for refusing to abide by the Supreme Court order and going ahead with the ban on the old Naira Notes.
Speaking via an audio recording, Ganduje was quoted saying, “President Buhari should remember that for several times he was trying to contest for presidency but he could not make it until there was an alliance.”
Ganduje said that after enjoying everything, Buhari has “turned back against the same democratic system that saw him to office”.
Also, the Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai slammed the President over the decision and asked residents of the State to continue using the old Naira notes.
In his broadcast to the people of Kaduna State, El-rufai urged them to stand up strongly for democracy, peace and national unity.
Reacting, Sani warned Buhari to expect more attacks as he has made a decision that is not favorable for his party.
He said, “The President should expect more attacks from his Party’s Governors.
“He has taken the miracle stick and crossed and wants to leave his men in the middle of the Red Sea.”
