Shehu Sani: Akeredolu Didn’t Write Long Letter On Owo Massacre But On Naira Policy
Former Nigerian lawmaker, Shehu Sani, has called out the Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, over his reaction to the Naira redesign policy by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
Sani who represented the Kaduna central district at the 8th Assembly wondered why the South-West governor and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) did not write a long letter when terrorists attacked his state last year and massacred worshippers.
Naija News recalls that some daring terrorists stormed a Catholic church in the city of Owo in Ondo State on the 5th of June 2022, and killed at least 40 people.
Recently, Governor Akeredolu was outspoken over the implementation of the new monetary policy by the Muhammadu Buhari administration.
The Governor had challenged the federal government, asking President Buhari to end the “endless drift into the abyss of chaos” created by the shortage of naira notes in the country. Akeredolu had also slammed the Governor of the CBN, Godwin Emefiele, for what he described as the “obviously mischievous implementation” of the naira redesign policy.
According to him, the naira crisis affecting the generality of Nigerians has shown that the policy has woefully failed. He further urged President Buhari’s government to allow the Supreme Court’s order on February 8 restraining the apex bank from carrying on with the February 10 deadline to stop the circulation of old naira notes.
Reacting to the Governor’s stand, Senator Sani, via his Twitter handle, noted that the Governor has never been so concerned about the people before now.
The former lawmaker pointed out that the Ondo helmsman did not approach the security issues in his state the same way he has taken the issues of new monetary policy.
“I read a long letter written to the President by my friend the Ondo Governor on the cashless policy.
“I expected that long letter when terrorists massacred innocent lives in the state. I believe insecurity is the major problem in the state,” Sani tweeted on Sunday evening.
