The presidency has for the first time made an attempt to explain the idea behind the hurried redesign of some naira notes, saying it was mainly targeted at frustrating some elite Nigerians who hoard illicit cash.

Report has it that the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Garba Shehu, in a statement on Saturday said contrary to insinuations, it is not targeted at the common man in the streets.

According to the presidency, government is not resting on its oars to see that citizens’ businesses are safe.

It regretted the disruption caused to the entire supply chain arising from the swap, assuring that it is due to end shortly.

Investigation reveals that since the deadline imposed by the Central Bank of Nigeria which is due to elapse on 31st January, there had been reports of long queues of people waiting for hours for their turn to deposit old notes and get new ones.

The development, newsmen observed, had triggered public anger and widespread criticism.

The currency changes is aimed at people hoarding illicit funds and not the common man, it became necessary to prevent counterfeits, corruption, and terrorist financing. It will stabilize and strengthen the economy on the long run, Shehu stated on behalf of the presidency.
