The governor said he had warned against stockpiling of dollars some weeks back but Nigerians failed to yield.

Abiodun explained that he would warn again that “don’t stockpile dollars, you will lose because naira is gaining strength everyday.”

He said “Infact, naira is acclaimed to be, on record, one currency anywhere in the world that has appreciated faster. I am not a soothsayer but I remember I said it a few weeks ago that don’t stockpile dollars, you will lose your shirt. And for those that have not heard, that have not seen, I am warning you again, don’t stockpile dollars, you will lose because naira is gaining strength everyday.”
