Following the naira scarcity occasioned by the Central Bank of Nigeria’s currency redesign, the Special Adviser Media and Publicity to the President, Femi Adesina, has revealed he is affected by the policy.

In an article titled ‘Living on a shoestring budget,’ the presidential spokesman said he has been spending N20,000 for one week.

According to Adesina, he has been surviving despite the new naira scarcity affecting the country.

“The Central Bank of Nigeria later secured a ten days extension of the deadline from President Muhammadu Buhari, which has now been further extended by a Supreme Court ruling,” he said.

“But it has not changed the fact that I’ve been spending the sum of N20,000 for one week, and I’m still spending it. Shoestring budget? Yes, you are right. That’s what it is.”

Adesina explained that he, alongside some others, had left for a journey that would take them to “Bauchi, Lagos, Senegal, Katsina, Kano, and Jigawa” from January 23 to January 31.
