He wrote; “CONFIRMED VIDEO: Yes. I, Nasir @elrufai made the commitment and stand by it. Those intent on impoverishing citizens through pea-brained policies of sabotage against our nation and democratic rights will not only fail, but will be held to account in this world & hereafter. So there!!!”

He said: “We have 18 days until the presidential election, right? I want to authoritatively tell you that if Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is declared the winner, the first major announcement you will hear from him is the review of this policy.
“I Nasiru El-Rufai, Uba Sani and Asiwaju promise you that this policy will be reviewed and people will be given enough time to swap their money. This message is directly from Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.”
Governor El-Rufai called on the citizens to stay calm and not rush to exchange their old notes. He assured them that even if four years pass, the APC governorship candidate for the state, Uba Sani, would still replace the money for them.
Governor El-Rufai also emphasized that according to the laws, the CBN is unable to ban the old Naira notes.
“Stop insisting that you must be given the new notes because it would affect your businesses. And that’s what they want.
“Tell everybody in Kaduna State that they should go ahead and do their transactions with their old notes, and every trader should accept the old currency.
“Please help us spread the message, continue to transact with the old notes, and don’t take your money to the bank. I can assure you that nobody will lose his money.
“You elected us to defend your interests, and we will continue to do that till our last breath,” he said.
