The statement went further “This policy will restore the real value of the Naira and this initial slip by the Naira against the Dollar is just very temporary and in the coming days Nigerians will appreciate the wisdom and foresight of the CBN Governor in implementing this policy.”

“Forex will be scarce for money launderers and treasury looters so it is either they carry the Naira out of the country or they put them in the banks where they can be traced, identified and retrieved.
