Naira Redesign: Some Politicians Lost Elections Because They Didn’t Have Money To Share- EFCC



The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said that some politicians didn’t win during the elections because they didn’t have money to give to share to the electorates due to the Naira redesign policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

The Head of Media and Publicity of the antigraft agency, Wilson Uwujaren, stated this while speaking at a function on Wednesday, May 17. He pointed out that the naira redesign helped in frustrating the electoral corruption during the elections, adding that some politicians lost in their strongholds because they did not have money to share.

“The violence during elections was caused by the unavailability of cash which was the CBN’s naira redesign policy because politicians could not buy votes. Some politicians lost elections in their strongholds which could not have happened because they didn’t have the cash to share.” Uwujaren said.
