Tinubu’s Policy Will Shock Currency Speculators- Economic Adviser


The Special Adviser to the President on Economic Matters, Tope Fasua, said that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will shock currency speculators.

Fasua,who represented the Vice President, Kashim Shettima, at the event, cautioned Nigerians who are hoarding foreign currencies with the hope that the local currency would continue to fall, warning that the policies of the government would shock them.

Fasua said: “For those who are speculating, praying and wishing that the currency would become nonsense, I believe that the policies being rolled out by the central bank and the government that I serve, led by the President, will shock some of them.

“You need to listen to the agenda, the man himself (Tinubu) and you will see that the level at which he is thinking is far ahead of most of us.

“You know, he has some very great ideas coming up. Some of them are what you’ve seen reversing the fall in the value of the naira, but he has also challenged us to review forward many of the targets, for example, the idea that Nigeria’s economy will get to a trillion dollars. He wants to achieve it by 2026.

“Some people thought that the naira would continue to lose value. Of course, we can already see what’s going on and who knows, maybe the naira will strengthen even further to maybe something like 500 or 600. I’m beginning to see some of those.”

He said there was going to be some tectonic reorganisation of the banking sector to make the naira more stable and stronger.

“If you want to position your exports properly, you have to be strategic, even in terms of the value of your currency. So you’re going to see all of these, including efforts from the fiscal side.

“We have patriots running the economy right now. And naysayers have to be very, very afraid.”
