PRP Condemns CBN’s Cybersecurity Levy, Demands Reversal Of The Policy

ABUJA, FCT, NIGERIA – The Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) has strongly criticized the recent imposition of a cybersecurity levy on electronic transfers by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), denouncing it as poorly timed and insensitive, particularly amidst the prevailing economic adversities endured by Nigerians due to the Federal Government’s unpopular policies.

In a statement released to the media and signed by its acting National Publicity Secretary, Comrade Muhammed Ishaq, the PRP calls for the immediate withdrawal of the levy by the CBN and urged the implementation of measures aimed at alleviating the hardships faced by Nigerians.

The statement raises concerns regarding the timing of the levy and questions the government’s decision to collect funds from Nigerians purportedly for the Office of the National Security Adviser without ensuring transparency or accountability in the utilization of such funds.

The PRP vehemently opposes the CBN’s directive, cautioning that it will exacerbate the financial burdens already weighing heavily on Nigerian citizens, particularly affecting vulnerable segments of the society such as hardworking individuals, families, and small business owners.

In a rallying cry, the PRP demands the reversal of the policy by both the CBN and the Nigerian Government, urging them to prioritize the implementation of measures that address the genuine concerns of citizens, including fostering economic growth, generating employment opportunities, and ensuring the equitable distribution of resources.

The party underscores its unwavering solidarity with the populace and its determination to champion a future characterized by fairness and prosperity for all.
