Shehu stated that the current administration's cashless policy was desirable and thus irreversible.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on media and publicity, Mr Garba Shehu, has said Nigerians will start praising Buhari after he leaves office on the 29th May, 2023.
Shehu, said this in an interview with Channels TV, adding that like previous presidents, Nigerians will be yearning for the return of Buhari when he hands over to the next president.
Citing the example of Goodluck Jonathan, who he claimed was persecuted out of office but had since become a favourite of many Nigerians, Shehu believed that the same yearning would occur after Buhari hands over power to the next president.
In terms of the cashless policy, Shehu stated that the current administration's cashless policy was desirable and thus irreversible.
He said, “Cashless is the way forward for Nigeria because cashless nations and in fact, all advanced nations of the world have gone cashless”.
Recognising the challenges that have accompanied the transition, the president's spokesman stated that it is unfortunate that the only people who should have been more pained are those who inflict pain on the lower segments of society.
