A while back, Paul tackled the Nigerian Senate for calling for the extension of the deadline of the swapping of the redesigned Naira notes.
The Senate recently called for the extension of the deadline for the swapping of the Naira notes to June 2023 for fear of the scarcity of the newly redesigned notes to common Nigerians.
Taking to his Instagram story, Paul accused the lawmakers of speaking up only because this particular policy affects them and the election
According to him, the lawmakers didn’t speak when the masses were hungry during the pandemic and palliatives because they were not affected.
