Atiku Casts Vote, Says Ordinary Nigerians Needs Naira Scarcity Intervention

Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party's (PDP) presidential nominee, cast his ballot in Yola, the state capital of Adamawa, and demanded the kind of action that would make the recently redesigned Naira notes accessible to regular Nigerians, according to Daily Post Nigeria.

In the midst of a wave of supporters, Atiku cast his vote at his Ajiya Ward in Old GRA, Jimeta, at around 9:30 am. He then responded to questions from reporters afterward.

In response to the limited supply of the new Naira notes, Atiku said, "Insofar as it was meant to discourage vote purchasing, I believe it was a worthwhile endeavor. However, I believe that the new Naira notes' usability for the typical guy needs to be improved." Although Atiku was raised in Jimeta, a local government area in the northern portion of Adamawa State, he was born in Jada. Additionally, he has a voting base in Ajiya Ward 012, a neighborhood near to his Yola residence where he frequently casts his votes.
