CBN Agrees to Mint the Gambian Dalasi

The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr. Godwin Emefiele has agreed to mint The Gambian Dalasi as proposed by Mr. Buah Said, the Governor of the Central Bank of the Gambia.

The Gambian Central Bank Governor, who had admitted before now, that the country was running low on currency and would like to learn how to manage their currency finally took this big step and will start to take advantage of the large capacity of mint printing in Nigeria.

The Nigerian Security Printing and Minting Company Plc also agreed to the deal and showed readiness if both parties are willing.

But one can’t help but wonder how other countries still want to partner with Nigeria despite the daily bad news and attack on democracy.

What are your thoughts on this?
