Group demands Emefiele’s resignation, plans #BringBackOldNotes protest.

A group under the auspices of the North Central Youth Stakeholders Forum (NCYSF) on Saturday asked Nigerians to prepare for a “Bring Back Our Old Notes” protest if the Naira scarcity lingers after Sunday.

The group’s call followed an appeal by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) against the extension of the deadline for the Naira swap beyond February 10.

In a statement signed by its Chairman, Mohammed Mohammed, the NCYSF described Abubakar’s statement as reckless and insensitive to the plights of ordinary Nigerians.

It alleged that over 80 percent of local government areas in the North-Central and across the country have no banks or Automated Teller Machines (ATMs).

The group demanded the resignation of the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, and urged Nigerians to hold him and his collaborators responsible for the hardship caused by the redesign of the naira notes.

The statement read: “We call on all Nigerians to remain vigilant to the direction the country is heading in the present circumstances and to prepare to embark on a mass ‘Bring Back Our Old Notes’ protest in the event the insufficiency of the new notes persists beyond the 5th of February.

“Over 80 percent of local government areas in the North-Central, and indeed the entire country have no banks. The NCYSF wishes to remind the general public that their enemies are not hidden as can be seen from the recent statement of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.”
