Accord Party presidential candidate, professor Chris Imumolen has urged president Mohammadu Buhari to declare a national emergency on Nigeria’s economy, following the scarcity of naira notes and petrol.
Imumolen who made the call on Thursday evening while addressing newsmen in Abuja noted that the naira redesign was a good policy but poorly implemented. He added that any policy that would affect the masses deserved to be recalled.
According to him, Nigeria was in double jeopardy for the failure of government in addressing the issues in the power sector which has made businesses crumble.
He, therefore, called on President Buhari to hear the cries of Nigerians and resolve the lingering issues so that Nigerians could prepare for the forthcoming general elections.
He said, “I have always said it that Nigeria’s Naira redesign policy is a good one, but it is a badly executed policy. It is a good one that we redesign our money to ensure that we curb corruption in the election but it is poorly executed.
“Any policy that will impose economic hardship on Nigerian people must be immediately reversed. The hardship on Nigerians which is our greatest concern is unbearable and it is not to be allowed. Innocent Nigerians are now bearing the brunt.
“We believe that a sincere government should rise up to this occasion and ensure that everything that needs to be done to salvage this situation is done so that Nigerians can have access to cash, access to PMS, and run their daily activities with hope of going for the election that comes up on the 25th.
“So in the light of this, I will appeal to the government to declare emergency in the economic sector, this means that every logistic manpower and government, will, and must now be mustard to tackle the current crisis and resolve it in the shortest possible time.”
He called on Nigerians to vote for him, promising that when he wins, things would change for the better.
Professor Imumolen further warned that any delay in responding to the “flammable” issues could result in an unmanageable and costly effect on Nigeria’s corporate existence.
He, therefore, begged Nigerians to remain peaceful.
“I believe Nigerians should focus on choosing the right person that will lead them towards the next generation. I have presented myself to Nigerians, I have told Nigerians what I can do, I have traversed all the local governments of this county, my executives and I, to tell Nigerians how I will represent them and present the alternative that Nigeria truly needs now as a country.
“Let us begin to use this opportunity to urge all citizens of our country to also be calm about this situation and I believe that in the coming days, government will rise up to the occasion to ensure that we have a saver economy, we have a safe place that would help us run our business better, ” he said.
