Naira Scarcity: I’m Suffering, My Family Can’t Cook ~ Orji Uzo Kalu


Former Governor of Abia state and senator representing Abia North in the national assembly, Orji Uzor Kalu has said that he and his family are suffering over the Naira redesign and cashless policy, TGB reports.

Appearing on a Channels Television program on Monday, February 20, Orji Uzor Kalu claimed that his family can no longer cook over the policy.

He said;

“You can see the policy is right but I don’t keep money in my house. I am suffering.

“The other day, my house manager told my wife in Abuja that we have no money to cook food. My wife was virtually roaming around and we feed over 250 people every day. It is a problem to me and to everybody.”

Reacting to President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive to Central Bank of Nigeria to make the old N200 notes circulate until April 10, Kalu said;

“This is why if I am in the position of the Mr President as I have told you before, I will listen to the Supreme Court judgement. The Supreme Court to me, whether they are right or wrong, Mr President should obey the law and ask his Attorney General to put a review to the Supreme Court.”
