Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has asked the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, to include the image of former President Olusegun Obasanjo on the redesigned naira notes.

He disclosed this in a tweet on his verified Twitter handle.

Atiku argued that Obasanjo deserves the honour given his positive contributions to the growth and development of Nigeria.

He said that having the former President’s face in the new naira note would motivate future leaders to put in extra efforts for the betterment of the country.

Atiku tweeted, “Africa is blessed to have a statesman of such impeccable democratic credentials as Chief Obasanjo. A man whose image ought to be in the redesigned naira note to inspire future generations of Nigerians to sacrifice for their nation and continent.”

Recall that the CBN governor, Godwin Emefiele, recently announced that the apex bank is redesigning N100, N200, N500, and N1000 notes.

According to the CBN, the new notes would go into circulation on December 5, 2022.
