Buhari is a curse to Nigeria. Until the people realise this Nigeria will keep going down. Before now many students oversea could use their cards to fund their education without the rigours of parent running up and down to make forex transfers. As of now, you can only withdraw $100 and be charged $3 for every withdrawal. I know GT has a Ghana branch, if you can just open GT Ghana and leave Buhari with his archaic policies. You may be able to transfer funds into your GT Ghana account and draw forex. Just find out. All those calling Emefiele are confused. Emefiele us only doing Buhari's bidding. If I am in his shoes. I would have resigned.

ONE CHANCE GOVERNMENT.

He is the text my guy received from UBA;

"Please note that ATM withdrawals are currently not enabled in Asia and the rest of Africa. However, you can spend up to $25,000 per annum on the Web & POS."

Bro, thisnis serious.
I haven't been able to get travel allowance for a while.
I had to buy dollars at 280 today.
If this card thing is true, then I am afraid I will have to withdraw all my money, convert it to dollars and move it to my us bank account.

If alot of nigerians do this, the banking sector would take a massive hit. That would be our way of protesting.

What kind of wahala is this one?
You cannot just make decisions without checking who it affects....
What about those who buy stuff online?
Pay school fees online?
Support their children?


Forget political bias, I am tired of these wicked decisions...

I regret putting Buhari in a position of power...

Why are alot of diaspora people talking like they dont understand the effect of fallen oil prices on Nigeria

Uncle Jonah had spent all our USD that could have protected us now, this is not totally Buhari's fault. Even tho Buhari could have constituted an economic team faster not much they would have done either than probably borrow some money.

FGN needs Soludo..within 3-6months you will see dollar going below 185 if soludo is heading CBN again

Exactly how I feel. If I was in Emefiele's shoes, I would resign. It is better to resign that associate my name to such dull and stupid policies.

Look at argentina which had currency controls for years and is just now removing this controls.
Nigeria is in for something
