Former President Goodluck Jonathan’s aide, Reno Omokri, has blasted critics of the new Naira notes.
Controversies continue to trail the introduction of the new naira notes since it was unveiled to the public on Wednesday.
The old currency colour was only adjusted and this got many Nigerians talking.
Omokri believes that the aim of the naira redesign was not to make it beautiful but for security reasons.
Omokri said the dollar is not beautiful but powerful.
He tweeted, “The Naira was not redesigned for beauty. It was redesigned for economic and security reasons. And it achieved exactly that. Naira appreciated. Bandits were flummoxed. The dollar is powerful, but not beautiful.”
