The publisher of Daily Nigerian, Jaafar Jaafar, has denied reports that Senate President Ahmed Lawan is working against the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
In an interview with Punch, Jaafar stated that Lawan is opposed to the Central Bank of Nigeria’s naira swap policy (CBN).
Tinubu claimed during the APC’s recent presidential campaign that the apex bank’s policy is being orchestrated against him.
Lawan, according to Jaafar, is not among those working against Tinubu’s presidential ambitions in the Aso Villa.
Remember that Jaafar listed the names of some people allegedly working against Tinubu in the Aso Villa in a series of tweets on Saturday.
Jaafar speaking on people working against Tinubu said;
No, I can’t say Ahmed Lawan really has a hand in this; I doubt it because even in the Villa, he does not wield as much influence as Tunde. In fact, he is among those kicking against Godwin Emefiele’s naira swap policy.
It was very clear because he was fuming over the failure of the Presidency to involve the National Assembly in the decision before the President approved the naira redesign. So, Ahmed Lawan is not part of it.
