Shehu Sani criticizes Ganduje for closing store due to the use of outdated Naira notes
Shehu Sani, a former lawmaker in Nigeria, responded to the governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, closing down a shopping center because he wouldn’t accept old Naira notes.
Sani argued that the penalty was too severe.
On Sunday, he posted the claim using his verified Twitter account.
Recall that the WellCare shopping center had been shut down by the Kano Consumer Protection Council (KCPC) at Ganduje’s request because it would not accept old Naira notes.
In defiance of a directive from the State government to continue accepting them, WellCare supermarket allegedly refused to accept old naira notes from customers, according to KCPC.
The council also declared that the supermarket would face legal action.
Sani, on the other hand, has called the treatment given to the supermarket repressive.
He tweeted, “Kano State shutting down a Mall because old Naira notes were rejected is repressive.
