Kano - Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has alleged that some political parties are working with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to undermine the country's democracy using the crisis caused by the naira redesign policy.
According to Ganduje, some persons he described as June 12 elements are regrouping ahead of the coming elections, Channels TV reports.
The Kano governor specifically named the Peoples Democratic Party as the spearhead of what he called an unfeasible cash policy that is affecting the masses.
In a statement released by the state's commissioner for information, Muhammad Garba, Ganduje claimed that the CBN and supporters are being rigid in the implementation of the “harsh and insensitive” cash policy.

In his view, the fact that the PDP and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, are in support of the CBN's initiative shows that they are involved in the plot to work against democratic processes.
For Ganduje, the insistence by the CBN on the implementation of the policy amid the absence of necessary technological infrastructure is a bad omen, adding that this can work against the coming general elections.
CBN deadline: Atiku makes U-turn on naira redesign policy
Days after lending his full support to the naira redesign policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Atiku Abubakar has given a new position on the issue.
In what seemed like a U-turn, Atiku on Tuesday, February 7, admitted that the CBN's initiative had brought about “serious distress for businesses and cash-dependent smallholder enterprises.”
Atiku, therefore, pleaded with the President Buhari-led government not to make Nigerians scapegoats in what he referred to as an “ongoing battle of titans over the redesign of the naira.”
Stating that the development should be addressed urgently, Atiku noted that he had earlier urged the federal government and the CBN to consider adjusting the deadline in consideration of the ordeals citizens are going through.
