On Thursday, the former vice-president had asked the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) not to extend the February 10 deadline for the exchange of old naira notes with new ones. Abubakar said “election riggers” are seeking to push the CBN to extend till after the elections so they could achieve their “evil plots”.

In a statement on Friday, Bayo Onanuga, the council’s media director, expressed dismay over the call by Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on the deadline for the old naira notes. We are currently at a loss to understand what informed the current call of Atiku on CBN not to extend the February 10 deadline despite the unmitigated hardship still being faced by many Nigerians who could not meet their basic daily needs as a result of lack of cash from banks and the empty ATMs,” Onanuga said.
