Over scarcity of new Naira notes in Nigeria, the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has stopped the proposed visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to commission some projects in the state.

Ganduje on Friday made it known while interacting with some of the stakeholders in the state.

According to him,“As we are waiting for this important visit, we found ourselves in this situation, which puts citizens into untold hardship. For security purposes, we wrote to the Presidency that President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to Kano be postponed.

“We got an acknowledgement copy of the letter. People are really suffering because of this policy,” the governor said, referring to the crisis over the new naira note.

“There are no banks in most of our rural communities. How these people get new Naira notes is of great concern. Just look at what is happening in our urban areas, people go and spend hours upon hours in banks. And without any assurances of getting the new notes.”

He emphasised that Kano being a commercial hub must be heard loudly, insisting that, “This problem affects all of us. Therefore, our voice must be heard in all nooks and crannies. We are a commercial hub. As such, our position must be loud and clear.”
