Islamic group, Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to abide by the Supreme Court’s decision on the Naira redesign policy, stating that Nigerians are suffering and can’t afford to feed.
The group’s Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, made the appeal in a statement in Lagos.
Akintola said, “Millions of Nigerians have been going through excruciating pain, hunger and starvation since the Nigerian fiscal crisis began.
“Thousands of Nigerians are, therefore, forced to go without food. Transporters have refused to take the old notes, and commuters are stranded.”
Akintola added, “Apart from this, Mr President must find a way of abiding by the decision of the Supreme Court, which earlier ruled that the old and new currencies should run parri passu.”
This is coming less than two days after Buhari’s nationwide address to Nigerians amid the naira scarcity.
