Youth activist and ex-president of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, NYCN, Bello Shagari has alleged that those behind the Naira redesign policy are working for the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
Bello, who is the grandson of the first democratically elected President of Nigeria, Shehu Shagari also said it was not realistic for Obi to win the forthcoming presidential election.
His statement is contained in a post on his verified Twitter handle on Friday.
He claimed he had thought the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, were the one behind the policy.
He wrote, “I heard that a group of people influencing the decisions of this monetary policy causing economic hardship for Nigerians are actually working for Obi. Some of us thought they are working for PDP.
“How can you make life difficult for millions for the ambition of a few?
“The problem is no matter how they try, it is not realistic for Obi to win. At least not in the next election. You don’t start running for president a few months before the election. Not in this democracy!”
His tweet did not sit well with some Twitter users who slammed him and asked how the presidential candidate of the Labour Party would be able to influence the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Some accused him of trying to sow seed of discord, while urging him to do better.
