The presidential aspirant of the People's Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has promised to legalize (with some regulations) the use of cryptocurrency in Nigeria if elected into power in the February 2019 president polls.
Atiku made his intentions known through a campaign policy document that was released to the public a few days ago. The document was quoted to have stated:
My mission is to ensure that Nigeria’s economy is responsive to the challenges of the 21st century knowledge economy by keeping with the amazingly dynamic technological pace.
Atiku believes that the adoption of cryptocurrency in Nigeria, the most populous black nation on earth, will help to create jobs, empower the youths, and create revenue for the government.
This is coming months after the Central Bank of Nigeria has termed cryptocurrency gambling. Let's hope that Atiku will keep his words if he gets elected as the President of Nigeria next year.
