The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, has bemoaned the poor implementation of the naira redesign which has no doubt brought hardship to millions of Nigerians.
Lawan noted that although the policy was laudable its poor implementation had beclouded the merits therein.
The Senate president made this known in a statement he personally signed on Thursday where he sued for peace and urged eligible Nigerians to go out and vote for the All Progressive Party.
He said, “I sincerely empathise with fellow Nigerians the hardship being experienced across our land in the implementation of the currency redesign policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
“Even though we all agree on the merits of the policy, its implementation gap, unfortunately, brought enormous hardship upon citizens across the country.
“However, I wish to assure us that with appropriate intervention by the government and the collaboration of all stakeholders, this hardship will soon fade away and normalcy will be restored to our daily livelihoods.”
The Senate president appealed to the people to eschew violence and instead make these elections a celebration of democracy in the country.
He cautioned them to always be mindful that Nigeria is the only country that they have and encouraged them to play their parts in sustaining its peace, unity and progress at all times.
