During the recent celebration of his 70th Birthday party at Abeokuta, Ogun State, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo G.C.F.R. defaced several Naira notes by spraying them on some women dancing at the party before local and international guests and the media. This act; spraying and defacing of the naira, is criminal under Section 21 of the Central Bank Act 2007 signed into law by the same former President Olusegun Obasanjo. HEDA already officially wrote both the offices of the Federal Attorney General and Ogun State Attorney General to demand enforcement of the provisions in the above stated law, criminalising the spraying and defacing of Naira, through the arrest and prosecution of Chief Obasanjo without further delay. This petition is meant to expose the hipocrisy of the Yar'adua's government where it fails to act in accordance with the provision of the Act. We shall submit same to his office and the office of Ogun State Governor, the state where the violation was perpetrated
