Ban Dollar as Trade Currency Like Egypt, Bwala Urges Tinubu

A former spokesman for the defunct Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign Organisation, Daniel Bwala, has urged President Bola Tinubu to ban the use of dollar for local and international trade.

According to him, the approach which he described as radical would ensure that hoarders and speculators bring out the currency from wherever they are hiding it from.

Bwala said this in a post on X amid the economic hardship brought about by the free fall of the naira against the dollar.

He said, “A more radical approach to smoking out the dollar from where ever speculators and hoarders are hiding them is for @officialABAT to sign an executive order given 30 days ultimate within which the federal government would officially ban the use of Dollar for trade both locally and internationally just like Egypt is taking the bold steps in that direction.”
