Report has shown that the Nigerian Senate has detailed its Committee on Banking, Insurance and Other Financial Institutions to interface with the Central Bank of Nigeria to proffer solutions to the ban on Cryptocurrency placed on Nigeria bank accounts.

The decision was reached after a rigorous debate on a motion titled:

“CBN’s decision to stop Financial Institutions from transacting in Cryptocurrencies and matters arising t.from.”

The motion which was sponsored by Senator Instifanus Dung Gyang representing Plateau North Senatorial district pointed out that the ban elicited very sharp . from Nigerians, hence, the need for legislative intervention.

“Notes that the CBN has issued a directive stopping all Financial Institutions from transacting in Cryptocurrencies. This is a follow-up of its earlier directives in January 2017 and February,.2018 which forbade Banks to use, hold, trade and transact in Cryptocurrencies.”

Co-sponsor of the motion, Senator Tokunbo Abiru representing Lagos East Senatorial district said t. was pressure on the society and that Cryptocurrency transactions have become a revolution,

“so it is difficult to stand in the way of a revolution like this.”

He said the transaction has become so attractive by the typical loss of value in legal tender and the recession occasioned by inflation.

“In Nigeria particularly, one cannot underscore the fact that in the last five years, people have been trading in Cryptocurrencies to the tune of over $500 million”

he noted

Last year, in particular, Nigerians had $40 million invested in Cryptocurrencies”, he maintained.

Senator Abiru acknowledged the challenges associated with Cryptocurrencies but added that the way forward was the proper regulation of the system.

“Of course, it comes with challenges, the challenge of Cybercrime, money laundering, terrorism financing and so on.”
