Cryptocurrency Ban: Nigeria unprepared to embrace the future – Ezekwesili

Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili has condemned the decision of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to ban cryptocurrency in the country.

In a tweet she shared via her twitter handle, Ezekwesili described the CBN policy as ‘regress-into-the-Stone Ages-policy.’

She wrote in a series of tweets:

“Now, whenever I see an egregious regress-into-the-Stone Ages-policy move by @NigeriaGov or its @cenbank and recall something one had previously said on same issue only a SMH follows.
I’ll repost tweets from my September 2020 Keynote speech @BlockchainNG conference.
Na waaa.

“Frankly @cenbank, all you needed to do was, map all the legitimate risks associated with #cryptocurrency and gather a subset of the super brilliant Nigerian young minds in #FinTech so you listen and learn more.
Learning is the greatest asset of the policy-maker. Never late. ✍🏾

“Our country’s DNA for irony is uncanny.

“At the same moment as we celebrate one of our own leading a global trade institution, we have a memo from our Central Bank making country appear unprepared to embrace the future.

“You can’t write this script.
