Onanuga led this out today, during an interview on Channels TV.

“That is why the government moved against Binance.

“Some people sit down using the cyberspace to dictate even our exchange rate, hijacking the role of the CBN.

“They just sit down and fix anything they like. It’s a sabotage and we are trying to prevent that from happening henceforth.”
