Governor Nyesom Wike is of the opinion that the New Naira redesign policy was target to undo some individuals, adding that this has stirred violence and has the capacity to mar the forthcoming elections.

In a media chat after the President’s national broadcast on Thursday morning, Governor Wike said the timing suggest that there is a political side to the implementation of the redesign policy.

“As far as I am concerned, I believe that this policy is targeted at some people,” Wike stated, noting especially that his inference becomes more valid because the government has said one major aim to the policy is to curb vote buying.

When asked if he might be one of those targeted, the governor replied, “that cannot affect us” adding that there is no reason for him to engage in vote buying seeing that his works as governor are glaring and the people of Rivers State can attest to what has been accomplished.
