According to PUNCH NEWS", President Muhammadu Buhari, said digital currency and its underlying technology, called 'Block chain' can increase Nigeria's GDP by $29 billion over the next 10 years.

Speaking while unveiling eNaira on Monday in Abuja, President Buhari, said Nigeria's digital currency will help more people, and, businesses from the informal into the sector, thereby increasing the tax base of the country.

He said eNaira would cater for businesses, and, households seeking faster, and cheaper means of payment instead of 'Private Currencies', that have gained popularity, and acceptance across the world, including Nigeria.

Quoting From President Muhammadu Buhari's Own Statement As Related To The News:


"In recent times, the use of physical cash in conducting business, and making payments has been on the decline.

This trend has be exacerbated by the onset of the COVID- 19 pandemic, and, the resurgence of a new digital economy."
