Former Commonwealth Secretary-General, Chief Emeka Anyaoku has asked President Buhari not to devalue the Naira.
Anyaoku said Buhari should seek the advise of economists on how best to go about solving Nigeria’s current economic challenge.

Anyaoku said this at an event where he chaired the presentation of the memoir of Ambassador Olu Sanusi.
He also said ”the parliamentary system that Nigeria’s nationalists designed did not allow corruption as such.”
