As the scarcity of naira hits the country, some artisans in Sokoto State have continued to reject money transfers in exchange for cash payments.
Our correspondent who monitored the development in the state gathered that the majority of artisans in the state rejected money transfer due to network problems.
Speaking with our correspondent on the reasons behind the decision, Yusuf Welder said he decided to stop the idea of receiving transfers because most of such transfers ended up reversing back to the sender.

“I can’t take transfer as payment for my service at all, if you transfer money to me where would I get the money from?
“I cannot leave my shop to go and spend the whole day at the ATM centre or is it the POS where I will have to pay exorbitant fees to get money, I cannot take such a chance”
Also reacting to the development, a motor mechanic, Monday Andrew, said he took such a decision due to the scarcity of naira in the state.
