Ruling party commends Nigerian President for reversing the CBN’s introduction of N5000 note.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has commended President Goodluck Jonathan for his administration’s responsiveness to the people’s wishes by reversing plans by the Central Bank of Nigeria to introduce the N5000 currency note.
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, the ruling party said it will continue to anchor its policies and programmes on the needs of the people and will not relent in upholding the interest of the nation.
“The primary concern of the PDP is to ensure the welfare of the generality of Nigerians. We know full well that the opinion of the people in every government policy and action matters a lot if we must achieve this cardinal premise of our manifesto. This is the essence of this decision by the President to reverse the introduction of the N5000,” Mr. Metuh said.
The statement also commended the National Assembly for truly representing the people adding that the synergy between the Legislature and the Executive would surely aid the transformation programme’s success.
“The critical role of the National Assembly as the representatives of the people is tangentially commendable at this juncture,” Mr. Metuh said.
“We pay a deserving tribute to the maturity of the leadership of the National Assembly, in meeting with the President and in working together with him to guarantee the best for the nation,” he added.
Nigerians were not left out in the PDP’s commendatory statement as it acknowledged their constructive criticisms of its programmes in the interest of good governance.
