@ade_jumoke967: In the end, those they were trying to punish still have more than enough access to the new money. It’s still masses receiving the punishment in their stead.

The energy shouldn’t be on the spender. And we all can see they sprayed responsively. I’m not speaking for anyone but it’s the fact.
Meanwhile, CorrectNG reported earlier that a Kaduna man, James Auta cried out after losing his wife and baby due to the country’s frustrating monetary and health policies.
His pregnant wife died after visiting a hospital in Kasuwan Magani, Kajuru Local government area of Kaduna state where he was unable to pay due to unavailability of the newly released naira notes.
Mr Auta disclosed that his wife was due for delivery but the hospital management insisted on advance payment before she will get attention.
Unfortunately she died because her husband, despite his efforts to withdraw money from the bank and other terminals, was unable unsuccessful.
The grieving man said he went with his wife to the hospital on Monday where the doctor asked him to deposit money before he could examine her.
He narrated; “I ran to my bank to withdraw money, but was told no money. I went back looking for POS operators, but I could not find any because, since the issue of new currency began, most POS operator locked up their business centre.”
Auta said that since he could not have access to his money, they decided to go back home, trusting God for safe delivery.
But his wife went into a labour at home late at night and he called a nurse in the neighbourhood but with the absence of medical facilities, the situation took a turn for the worse.
”My wife began labour around 11 pm. Since I could not withdraw any money, I called the attention of a nurse within our locality. But as my wife delivered, blood was coming out non-stop. All efforts by the nurse to stop the bleeding failed,” he said.
