I believe we are. Rome was not built in a day and the journey of one million kilos starts with a step. The most important aspect of a journey is the take off. Actually it cannot come without challenges but I believe that CBN will be on hand to address the challenges as they come.
Nigeria cannot afford to be left behind in this era of technology. We must move along with the times and pay the price associated with it.
When do you think Nigeria can be ready for this?

I know and I quite understand it is good to be optimistic, but not at the expense of reason. The truth about the cashless economy thing is that like many other things 'we are not ripe for it' Already, over 60% of our population live 'cashless' day by day with little hope to have a heavy purse someday or anyday soon. Of what importance is an ATM to a woman roasting maize by the road side? Julius Nyerere, first Tanzania president once said "if the west go to the moon, let us (Africa) go back to the grassroot" The rural majority in Nigeria is constantly being marginalized and the poverty level is increasing at an increasing rate, yet, we talk about cashless economy when the people are already cashless.
