During an APC rally in Owerri, Imo State yesterday Monday March 23, General Muhammadu Buhari promised those gathered that if voted into office he would ensure the Naira becomes equal in value to the Naira.
Since GEJ became president the Naira has steadily fallen in value against the dollar, the current rate is N200 to $1 (Bank Rate) and N250 to $1 (Blackmarket)
It is sad that the value of the Naira has dropped to more than N230 to one dollar; this does not speak well for the nation’s economy. He urged the people to vote for APC, noting that he would ensure that corruption was tackled headlong if elected.
Also, the Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has given him (Buhari) a new nickname, “Okechukwu,” which reportedly means “God’s portion.”
According to Premium Times, Buhari was given the nickname when he traveled to Imo State on Monday to campaign at the Dan Anyiam stadium in Owerri.
Stating that Buhari was the chosen one to lead Nigeria, Okorocha also stated, “May the soul of PDP rest in peace. May they never rise again.”
