Update:Paul Okoye Questions Senate

Popular Nigerian singer and one of the music duo, P-Square, Paul Okoye, has slammed the Nigerian senate for pretending to be spokemen for the masses regarding the deadline for the old Naira notes.

The Senate last Tuesday asked the Central Bank of Nigeria to extend the deadline for the exchange of old naira notes from the January 31 deadline to May 31, 2023.

The Senate also urged the CBN to open an exchange window where people that don’t have bank accounts can deposit their old notes.

Critising the Senate in a post on his Instagram page on Sunday, Okoye claimed that the federal lawmakers wouldn’t have said anything if the situation didn’t affect them.

He said, “During pandemic, people were hungry. Where was the senate when the palliative were discovered? Same government were (sic) hiding food for their citizens, they were silent and dumb because it doesn’t affect them.

“Now, with the CBN naira redesign, they became spokemen for the poor cos it affects them. Imagine there was no election. Aswear, they won’t say pim!!”
