“Replace naira with cowries” – Basketmouth to FG


Popular Nigerian comedian, Basketmouth known as Bright Okpocha, advised to replace naira with cowries as a legal tender for the return of cowries as a legal tender.

He wrote: “Join all these figures together and it’s still not up to $5. Can we just go back to using cowries already?

Fans and followers took to the comment section to react to his post.

While some talked about the sad reality the post exposes, others simply said despite the number of heads on the naira notes, they are still undervalued.
