Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) presidential candidate has urged the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, to put former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s image on the redesigned naira notes.
Atiku said Obasanjo’s face should be on the naira note due to his efforts in making Nigeria a better place.
The PDP presidential candidate said having Obasanjo’s face in the naira would inspire future generations of Nigerians to sacrifice for the country.
In a tweet, Atiku wrote: “Africa is blessed to have a statesman of such impeccable democratic credentials as Chief Obasanjo. A man whose image ought to be in the redesigned naira note to inspire future generations of Nigerians to sacrifice for their nation and continent.”
Recently, the apex bank governor, Godwin Emefiele, announced the redesigning of N100, N200, N500, and N1000 notes.
The CBN boss said the new notes would be released on December 5, 2022.
