“Buhari closed Nigeria’s border and ruined thousands of businesses Buhari closed Kano film village, costing us millions Now, Buhari has shutdown #Crypto #BitCoin, making thousands jobless Does @MBuhari want our economy to be like his cows that dont increase in number?”
“You can’t create jobs for youths, so they created jobs for themselves via #Crypto #BitCoin. And now you have shut that down We can’t farm because of your kinsmen herdsmen. We can’t manufacture because you gave us no electricity. @MBuhari , what do you want us to do?”

DJ SWITCH WROTE: “If the ban on crypto by CBN is true ehn, it points yet again to the ill informed, backward, poverty promoting dinosaurs T-Rex leading us. Use your time ⌚ to investigate and close accounts sponsoring terrorists in the country if you don’t know what to do!!! GAWD Man #endsars Man walking”

Joni wrote: “I strongly believe the banning of cryptocurrency has something, if not everything to do with the #EndSARS protest we had last year. Most donations outside Nigeria were done via Bitcoin, especially when Jack also keyed into the protest by donating via Bitcoin.”
“They just wanna frustrate the youths and enrich those that are into Bureau De Change in the country. Because with this, we’ll be forced to buy from them. And we all know where these people that are into this business in Nigeria come from.”

Olaudah Equino wrote: “Hearing the Crypto ban is to forestall further #endsars youth protests. As it’s going, this old man isn’t behaving like one who has just 2 years to go. The man is still consolidating his hold on power, even as his second term is about ending. Are you sensing what I’m sensing?”
