According to Peoples Gazette, the Transportation Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, has been caught on tape admitting that President Muhammadu Buhari has always directed the Central Bank of Nigeria to keep printing money since 2015.
Mr Buhari campaigned on promises to revamp the Nigerian economy, but has been chastised for worsening the situation over the last six years of his presidency.
Mr Amaechi also revealed that they took an oath never to openly confess to Nigerians that the Government was on a printing spree of the national currency in an interview with journalists prior to the 2019 general election, in which Mr Buhari was re-elected.
