Instead of launching the e naira, the failed Central Bank governor should be interested in at least returning the value of naira to what he met when he got into office. “The Central Bank governor witch haunted those who took part in EndSARS protest by placing embargo on their account. Why has he not done same to bandits or killer herdsmen?”

Ademitunji Afolabimi, “What about the general public? What is the level of their preparedness about this digital currency? Or it only for the financial gurus and experts? What sensitization have you done about the currency and how the general public can key into it use? Will it be acceptable by the Nigerian public?”.
