President Buhari Explains Why FG Stopped The Sale Of Forex To Bureau de Change Operators


President Muhammadu Buhari, while speaking on the state of the economy during an interactive session with the Nigerian community in the United Kingdom, has revealed why his government stopped the sale of foreign exchange to bureau de change (BDC) operators. He said the sale was stopped due to fraudulent acts perpetrated by some directors of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). In his words:

“We found out that some directors of CBN owned bureau de change and when foreign exchange comes, they take it to their bureau de change and give government the change,” he said.”


“We had to stop the federal government giving bureau the change. I am explaining this to give a tip of the ice berg of the problem we inherited. We are getting so hard because we have no other [option] than to make everybody accountable.”
