New Naira Note: Arewa Youth Tells EFCC To Fish Out Wicked Politicians

The Arewa Youths Consultative Forum (AYCF) has appealed to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to fish out wicked politicians who have stashed public funds. The group is of the opinion that the new policy on redesigning the naira notes would expose wicked politicians with ill-gotten wealth.

The AYCF National President, Yerima Shettima, in a Daily Post report, said the anti-graft agency must ensure that politicians who are caught must explain the source of their ill-gotten wealth.

Shettima noted that the new policy would force politicians and kidnappers in rural places to come out, adding that he knows they are already jittery by now.

He bemoaned that majority of Nigerians can’t be suffering while a few hide monies meant to be circulated.

He, therefore, called on all the EFCC to be vigilant and watchful at these critical times as the nation nears the election year.


Shettima said “It goes beyond the issue of kidnapping, we have a situation where money is not in circulation, and most of these wicked politicians kept the money in their custody for election and whatsoever purpose.


“People are suffering; so for me, it’s one of the best ideas the CBN has introduced, and Nigerians should support it.

“This money will be forced to come out and some of them must account for how they got the money. They must explain how they got all the money they kept in their private homes.

“The second advantage is that the kidnappers who are in the villages who are hiding money would become jittery; they will bring it out and be forced to deposit it in the bank. People have to account for what they do and explain their source of income.

“The EFCC and other security agencies should be very watchful at this critical point so that people will begin to account for ill-gotten wealth.”
