The Kano state governor is going all out to ensure that the Federal government backs down on its position with regards to the new naira notes.
This is as the Kano State Consumer Protection Council has closed down the Wellcare Supermarket after the management refused to accept old naira notes from customers.
Governor Abdullahi Ganduje ordered the closure of the store, as confirmed by the acting Chairman of the council, Baffa Danagundi; and the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Social Media, Abubakar Ibrahim.
At least five states including Kano had sued the Federal Government over the deadline for three old naira notes, seeking for an extension of the deadline for its usage.
In the interim, former Nigerian lawmaker, Shehu Sani, has reacted to the shutting down of a shopping complex by the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, for refusing to accept old Naira notes.
