The National leader of the All Progressive Congress, APC, was one of the dignitaries that converged on Oriental Hotel to felicitate with the bride’s father at the event.

He however, was the highest on the list of those who abused the naira at the event by spraying it on the new couple as if the money was going out of fashion.

Recall that recently the Central Bank of Nigeria renewed its campaign against abuse of naira saying persons caught abusing it would face the full wrath of the law henceforth.

Spraying of naira, hawking and mutilation it are punishable under section 21, subsection 1-5 of the CBN Act of 2007.  The penalties include a fine of N50,000 or six months in imprisonment or both.
