NAIRA CRISIS: Group slams Okowa over silence on Supreme Court ruling
A Delta state-based Non Governmental Organization (NGO), Value Reorientation Initiative – VRI, has slammed the Governor of Delta state, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, over his silence on the pronouncement of the Supreme Court on the reintroduction of the old notes.
This was contained in a statement dated Saturday signed by the group’s president, Comrade Ogaga Darlington Ossai.
The group said that at a time when other Governors such as those from the Northern part of the country were busy talking to their people, and enforcing the ruling of the supreme court, Okowa chose to remain akimbo.
He described the unusual silence and absenteeism of the Governor of Delta state in recent times as undeserving.
Continuing, the group queried “Why Sacrifice Governance on the Altar of Politics in Delta State? Why is Governor OKOWA silent on the pronouncement of the Supreme Court on the reintroduction of the old notes?
“We hereby call on Senator Dr Ifeanyi OKOWA to take a stand with the people to enforce the ruling of the supreme court. Address a press conference, and assure the people of Delta state that you are with the people on this as such we can use the notes in markets. The people are presently confused as CBN and the Presidency have decided to go mum on the issue.
“Posterity is watching our actions. Act now and save the people of DELTA STATE Needless hardship,” he concluded.
