Former FCT Minister and chieftain of the Congress for Progress Change (CPC), Malam Elrufai, has criticized President Goodluck Jonathan for succumbing to the wishes of the Nigerian people and suspending the introduction of the 5000 Naira note. Elrufai, on twitter said that the CBN governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi is the
only person with a brain in the government of President Jonathan.
When reminded about Mrs Ngozi Okonjo Iwealla, Mallam El rufai replied that Mrs Iwealla “is equally intelligent maybe beclouded now,” but “nowhere near Sanusi Lamido Sanusi...I know both”.
He also described Jonathan as fickle minded and indecisive.
Reeling from a barrage of public anger and disagreement, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) today buckled under pressure and suspended the planned introduction of the N5000 note following a directive from the presidency.
This amazing U-turn came after the presidency through the Special Adviser to the president on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati, yesterday declared that President Goodluck Jonathan has ordered that the planned introduction of N5,000 be put on hold.
But Mallam el rufai who is said to be related to Mallam Lamido Sanusi by marriage was not impressed. He tweeted:
"finally the emperor halted SLS's N5000 note, where do you now stand?"..his indecisive fickleness doesn't affect me!" and added:
"Oga El Rufai was supporting Sanusi before now."...& will ALWAYS will, SLS is the only brain in GEJ crew...."
