We need more Naira notes to fight coronavirus, Tinubu tells Buhari

Former Governor of Lagos State and National leader of All Progressives Congress APC, Bola Tinubu, has tasked Buhari led Federal Government to print more naira notes to fight coronavirus.

Tinubu disclosed that the president of America, Donald Trump has done the same thing to save the economy from recession.

He want Nigeria to emulate America and please release more naira notes to combat the effect of the deadly virus.

According to PUNCH, The Asiwaju of Lagos added, “Already, the price of oil has fallen to less than 30 dollars a barrel. This will bring a dollar shortfall. This does not, however, necessitate a corresponding shortfall in public sector naira expenditures.

“The US controls dollar issuance. We control naira issuance as is our sovereign right. Just as America has used its sovereign right to issue its currency to stave economic disaster, so too may Nigeria issue naira for the same purpose,” he said.
