Former presidential aide and author, Reno Omokri has averred that there’s no Nigerian that needs more than N100k cash weekly.

He stated this via his Twitter handle on Thursday, December 8, while speaking in support of the newly imposed cash withdrawal limit by the Central Bank of Nigeria.

Recall that CBN restricted the cash withdrawal limit over-the-counter (OTC) to a maximum of N100,000 cash per week for individuals and N500,000 cash per week for corporate bodies.

The policy was, however, met with mixed reactions as some people criticized it, while others spoke in favour of it.

Reacting to the criticisms, Reno asserted that the outrage is baseless because there’s no Nigerian that needs more than N100k cash weekly.

According to him, other than paying for transport fare and shopping for groceries, every other transaction can be done cashless.

He tweeted;

“There is no Nigerian that needs more than ?100k cash weekly. Other than paying bus conductor or buying groceries, everything can be done cashless. It is kidnappers, bandits and sexual bandits (urgent 2k girls) who are fighting this policy using political godfathers”
