The governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, stated that Nigerians will be allowed to trade crypto almost four months after it informed banks to close crypto-linked accounts. “We have carried out our investigation and we found out that a substantial percentage of our people are getting involved in cryptocurrency which is not the best. Don’t get me wrong, some may be legitimate but most are illegitimate.” Claimed Godwin.
