“Bitcoin Has Made Our Currency Almost Useless”- Senator Sani Musa Claims
Sani Musa, Niger East Senatorial District in the National Assembly senator has shed more light on the reason for the ban of cryptocurrency transactions in Nigeria by the Central Bank of Nigeria.
According to Musa, cryptocurrency is being used for transactions worldwide without a clear knowledge on who owns or operates the digital currency.
The lawmaker while speaking during plenary on Thursday, further said that Bitcon has made the Naira useless and valueless.
He stressed the need for cryptocurrency to be regulated in Nigeria.
In his words;
“Cryptocurrency has become a worldwide transaction of which you cannot even identify who owns what. The technology is so strong that I don’t see the kind of regulation that we can do. Bitcoin has made our currency almost useless or valueless.”
“If we have an economy that is very weak and we cannot regulate cryptocurrency in Nigeria, then I don’t know how our economy would be in the next seven years.”
