'Naira Not Worth Paper It Is Printed On Yet Our Bosses Want To Make It Beautiful'- Adeboye

By Adedayo Said

Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), on Friday, lamented the Naira’s depreciation and the move to redesign it.

Last month, Godwin Emefiele, governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), announced that the apex bank will issue redesigned N200, N500, and N1,000 notes, effective December 15, 2022.

According to Emefiele, the new and existing currencies will remain legal tender and circulate together until January 31, 2023.

Reacting to this during the church’s November Holy Ghost Service, themed, ‘Let It Rain’, Adeboye lamented that Nigeria’s situation had deteriorated to the point where the country’s currency was no longer worth the paper on which it was printed.

He said, “You know what’s going on in our country. It doesn’t even make sense anymore. Our naira now is not even worth the paper it is printed on.

“And while people are hungry, trying to find enough money to buy bread to eat, our bosses are thinking of making the naira more beautiful, even if it can’t buy bread, at least, it will look beautiful. Oh Lord, have mercy!

“We have problems in the land now. Things seem to be getting funnier and funnier. If you don’t learn to laugh in Nigeria now, you will develop hypertension.”
