With 16 days to go into the general elections, many chieftains of the APC believe that implementing the naira redesign at such short notice in the build-up to the election was not the best decision by the apex bank.

This development on the implementation of the naira note has also triggered a lot of rancour amongst the hierarchy in the APC with the suspicion that some cabal within the party was plotting to frustrate the presidential ambition of the Bola Tinubu, the flagbearer of the party.

In an interview, Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state made it public that some cabal at the State House was behind the scarcity of the naira to discredit and sabotage Tinubu's goodwill.

These submissions by Governor El-Rufia were concurred by APC chieftain and former minister of aviation Femi Fani-Kayode.
