Naira scarcity: 2023 Election May Not Hold Over Attacks On Banks – Primate Ayodele

Primate Elijah Ayodele, leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, has said that attacks on commercial banks are trying to destabilize the 2023 elections starting next week.

Primate Ayodele also expressed doubt over the conduct of the upcoming elections scheduled to start next week.

He identified increase in violent protests over fuel and Naira scarcity, are misplaced priorities against innocent citizens.

In a statement signed by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, the cleric urged Nigerians should stop fighting themselves but face the government and those in charge of the policy.

He stressed that destroying banks will only lead to pain for ordinary citizens because they won’t be able to operate for months.

He said: “Fighting ourselves does not make any sense. Godwin Emefiele and Buhari have their reasons for this policy, instead of fighting individuals, take them to court and if you are not satisfied, go to Abuja and fight them instead of destroying banks and properties.

“The banks are not to be blamed, it’s what they have that they can give.

“This is why I am not certain about the date for the election because how will the materials be distributed with the issues on ground?

“How will people come out to vote even if it’s conducted, it will not be every part of the country and it will lead to rigging.

“I have seen that the date of the election isn’t certain but the INEC is obstinate, I don’t know how we will conduct an election like this. The government should do all they can to circulate the approved notes if they want to call back the other notes.”
