Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi has denied reports stating that he said the government has been printing money since 2015.
He urged Nigerians to disregard such information circulating on the social media on the issue.
A social media report noted that the Minister made the disclosure in an interview with journalists prior to the 2019 general elections.
He said: “I have never head any financial institution in the country and therefore did not qualify as an authority in the issues that concerns printing of money into the economy.
“I advise Nigerians who wants information on printing of money to find out from the appropriate agency and not circulate false statement to gain cheap publicity.”
