Naira Swap: Hard Times Will Soon Be Over- Gov Abiodun Assures Nigerians

Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has asked Nigerians to hold on to their faith during this present difficult time of cash crunch posed by the implementation of the "Naira Swap"policy  of Central Bank of Nigeria in the past two months

Abiodun who was speaking at a church service held at the Redeemed Christian of Church, RCCG, Reigning King Sanctuary, Region 12 Headquarters, Sagamu area of the State, expressed optimism that the hard times the country is currently passing through would soon be over.

The governor pointed out that the difficult time caused by the cashless policy would soon fade away, urging people to be resilient, hopeful, and keep praying for divine intervention.

"We should continue to dig, be resilient and keep faith alive. The challenges our country is going through is a phase and it shall soon pass away", he assured

"We should continue to pray, Nigeria will be okay. The situation in Nigeria is like the wall of Jericho, but with consistent prayer and faith, Nigeria shall overcome", Abiodun added

While recounting his experience during the run up to the 2019 governorship election, Abiodun  maintained that his emergence was through the grace of God despite all the obstacles he encountered.

He promised that his administration would continue to implement programmes that would better the lots of the people, informing that his government had introduced some measures to ameliorate the suffering caused by the cashless crunch.

He urged the residents in the state to be law-abiding and avoid any act capable of disturbing the peace of the state, particularly at this election time.
