Northern governor hiding N22bn old naira notes – Buba Galadima

A prominent figure from the North, Buba Galadima, has disclosed that a current governor has N22 billion in old notes stashed away.

In an interview with Trust TV’s Daily Politics, the former National Secretary of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, revealed the information.

Galadima responded to a query regarding the contentious CBN policy regarding the redesign of the naira.

The leader of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, or NNPP, recalled that the group had previously adopted a staunch stance on the divisive topic.

Galadima said the CBN Act states that in an event of naira redesign, it should be done within a period of not less than six months.

The statesman said the government however explained it approved the policy because many individuals had amassed the currency in their houses.

“I agree. I know, from intelligence, that there is a governor in the Northwestern part that has about N22 billion of the old currency.

“Yes, N22 billion stacked in his house as I speak to you. He knows himself. And the security agencies know,” he stressed.

Galadima said the agencies might be looking the other way because “maybe they belong to the same club or they are protecting him”.

The politician added that the trap is for the governor to go change the cash “accumulated through corruption”.

A fortnight ago, CBN Governor Godwin Emefiele said the old N200, N500 and N1000 denominations were recalled because N2.7 trillion was kept in people’s homes before the Buhari administration came on board.
