New Currency Deadline: If you Didn’t Wanted Vote Buying, Why Feel Targeted? Osuntokun Replies Tinubu



The campaign Director General of the Labour Party, Akin Osuntokun has blasted the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, following the latter’s recent statement, during one of his campaign rallies.


It could be recalled that Tinubu had alleged that the extant introduction of new naira notes and the subsequent deadline for usage of the old currency, was geared towards stalling his possibilities of emerging winner of the presidential election.



However, this did not get down well with the Campaign DG of Labour Party and so many other Nigerians of good conscience, who without mincing words, took a swipe at the Presidential Candidate.

Akin Osuntokun who was reacting to the redesigning of the Naira currency noted that the former governor of Lagos state may had planned on using cash to buy votes from the people, and that if that were not the case, he would never have felt that the policy by the Central Bank Of Nigeria, CBN was targeted at him.



The campaign director general who asked the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu on why he was worried over such policy after the statement he made claimed that the only sense one could make of such is that he is probably guilty as charged.

Speaking further, he stressed that his party and their candidates were totally in support of the policy made by the Apex bank, as they demand a free and fair election.



In his words: “He said the currency policy was targeted at him, how do you interprete what he has said. If you don’t have the intention of buying people, of using crass employment of Naira to buy people, why should you feel targeted? The only sense it makes is that he is guilty as charged”.



One will not be wrong to say that before the CBN policy, some had pointed out that the issue of vote buying may be an issue in the 2023 election.
