The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has criticised the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration over the depreciation of Nigeria’s currency, the Naira.
Ejesgist News gathered that Tinubu made this condemnation at the party’s presidential campaign rally in Calabar, Cross River State, on Tuesday.
According to the former Lagos State governor, when the government took over in 2015, the Naira/Dollar exchange rate was about N200 to a dollar, but it has depreciated to about N800 to the dollar on the parallel market.
“Today, they moved the exchange rate from N200 to N800. If they had repaired it, if they had arrested this, we won’t be where we are today, we will be greater.
“They don’t know the way. They don’t know how to think. They don’t know how to do,” Tinubu said.
