Reno Omokri, a socio-political activist, stated that the newly released Naira notes were modified for economic and security reasons rather than beauty.
He also stated that the Dollar is powerful due to its value rather than its beauty.
Remember that President Muhammadu Buhari launched the redesigned Naira notes by the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, yesterday.
According to NenyKo, conflicting emotions have followed the release, with many expressing discontent with the new Naira notes’ appearance, while others have gone to social media to make fun about them.
However, Omokri has come out to criticize those who had shown dissatisfaction with the appearance of the Naira notes.
Taking to his verified Twitter handle, he wrote, “The Naira was not redesigned for beauty. It was redesigned for economic and security reasons. And it achieved exactly that. Naira appreciated. Bandits were flummoxed. The dollar is powerful, but not beautiful. Emefiele and the CBN board deserve kudos, not hubris!”
