Nigerian presidential hopeful, Bukola Saraki, recently said he supports the digital currency industry which he claimed has created opportunities for the country’s youth. However, he insisted that there is a need for the enactment of laws that guide players in this space.
I also think it has helped especially the young generation in creating jobs and opportunities. And anything that creates jobs and an enabling environment for people to do their businesses, I am in support of that. So, yes, I am in support of that.
Saraki reiterated, however, that money laundering and abuse concerns that regulators often raise including the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) must be addressed.
