CBN Governor banned crypto transactions with Nigerian banks because money created out of thin air and the idea of DECENTRALIZATION doesn’t sit right with him, this country is a badly written joke.
So Emefiele the CBN Governor thinks Cryptocurrency is created from thing air by people of the dark world?
Is this man dragging the GOAT position with Bubu in cluelessness?
