Ogun State governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has joined other governors to order Commercial Bank operating in the State not to stop accepting old Naira notes.
According to The Guardian Nigeria, his warning came sequel to complaints received from the people by the state government that commercial banks and some filling stations were rejecting the old Naira notes as legal tender.
The governor spoke on Tuesday while addressing market men and women at Itoku Kampala market in Abeokuta, as part of his reelection campaign to Abeokuta North local government area of the State.
Abiodun, who frowned at the action of the banks, noted that since the new Naira notes were not available, commercial banks must accept the old banknotes to ease the suffering of the people.
He called on the people to remain calm, assuring that his government was working assiduously to ensure that the present situation was brought under control.
