Okon Lagos tells

Nollywood actor, Ime Bishop, popularly known as Okon Lagos, has urged Nigerians to allow President Buhari implement the naira redesign policy.

Recall that Buhari declared that the old N1,000 and N500 notes are no longer legal tender in Nigeria, and that only the old N200 note is acceptable.

This directive was, however, met with kickbacks from some Governors who maintained that old notes are still a legal tender in their states.

Reacting to the drama playing out in the media, Okon Lagos, in a post shared on his Instagram page, said the Governors are not fighting for the interest of the people.

According to him, those politicians are only resisting the policy because they have stocked up old notes which they allegedly want to use to buy votes in the forthcoming election.

He further appealed to Nigerians to allow Buhari implement the policy, so he can fulfil his promise of a free, fair and credible elections.

The 41-year-old actor added,

“No desperate vote-seeking Nigerian politician genuinely cares about you. Their fight to keep all old currency notes as legal tender isn’t for you!

Let it just be that N200, N100, N50, N20, N10 and N5 are made available. It will be enough to satisfy the cash needs of every common man.

What these vote buying politicians have are the exact old currency notes that are no longer legal tender (N1000 and N500).

Guys chill let the elections finish. This fight isn’t aimed at punishing the common man. It’s aimed at delivering a fair elections! Abeg make we not too vex. E go soon finish!”
