He added that the government's fight with Binance, which has led to an appreciation of the naira, would only yield temporary results.

He said the naira's value would only get stronger if the government focused on fixing the economy.

@ahmed_crypto1 predicted that the naira would still depreciate to N2,500 to a dollar and could get as bad as N3,000/$1.

The government should control FX

Reacting to @ahmed_crypto1's prediction, an expert trader, Ajuwon Aanuoluwapo, said there is no saying how effective the federal government's move would be.

He added that the federal government should actually have total control of the FX. He said to Legit.ng:

"Whenever there's a government policy, there's always a retracement, but the dump doesn't happen for long. Also, the naira has been depreciating against the dollar for years.

"Normally, the government should have total control of FX but everybody got involved more with platforms like Binance.
"We don't know how effective the latest govt measure would be. No light, there's nothing, what exactly would make the naira strong? The temporary spikes/drops on naira/dollar are connected with people panic-selling whenever any measures came out in the past."
