Nigerians, especially the residents of Ogun State have been urged to remain calm in the face of daunting challenges created by the ongoing currency swap of the Federal Government so as not to create room for anti- democratic elements to hijack the election process.
The Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon Olakunle Oluomo, who gave the admonition in an interview stated that the effects of the ongoing fiscal policy of the Federal Government being implemented through the Central Bank of Nigeria had affected Nigerians negatively as able bodied men and women now spend better part of working hours at the banks’ ATM.
According to Oluomo, ” while it is important to acknowledge that the currency swap is good for the economy, the process of its implementation as currently being experienced has created a lot of socio-economic hardships for Nigerians, we should thus remain calm and not to allow anti-democratic elements to hijack the process.
We should endure to the last, and come out en-masse on Saturday to exercise our franchise for the candidates of our choice”, the Speaker counseled.
