August 27, 2012 – 5000 Naira Nigerian Currency Note Will Insult Tafawa Balewa, Murtala, Ikoku
The introduction of the new 5000 Naira Nigerian currency note is a slap on the face of the late Tafawa Balewa, Murtala Muhammed and Alvan Ikoku whose portraits are on the N5000 note – claims a senator from Zamfara. naijagists.com
Senator Kabiru Marafa said he’ll move against CBN plan to introduce the new currency and will see the N5, N10 and N20 naira notes changed into coins.
Here is what Marafa said while addressing journalists yesterday.
“If you want to honour the women, they don’t have to be known women, you could put five of them–one Hausa, one Yoruba, one Ibo, one woman from the southern minority and another one from the northern minority. I don’t subscribe to the idea of relegating Balewa, Ikoku and Mohammed. It will amount to throwing merit into the dust.”
Do you agree with him?

THE NEW 5000 NAIRA CAN NOT move Nigeria TO BETTER position so I will give my adverse to Nigeria government to forget the new currency and give good work to Nigeria.
I must say this. I know that the rising why they want to made the 5000 naira, they want to make it because it will give them help to scam us.

I dont kwow why evry Nig policies makers are’nt put d poor masses in mind.changing 5naira, 10naira n 20naira notes to coins wil surely cause more hardship to people then things we’ re buying with those naira wil be no more.introducing 5000naira note isnt a problem.we should leave those notes like dat.
September 13, 2012 at 8:18 PM
I think Nig.as a nation is beyond any leaders or heros dat had led us into dis predicament in d country today.if those leaders had led us wel i dont think Nig. wil like dis today .the content of tribalism stil in our system.tel me if we draw goat in our curencies dont we goin to accept it.so 4get about insult or slap to anybody thats tribalism.
