He explained that the program’s goal was to constantly enlighten and educate the public and stakeholders through activities that contribute to national development, as well as to keep its members up to date on evolving tax policy and associated concerns.

Adesina said, ”With the implementation of the eNaira, it is expected that ultimately, tax evasion will be minimal as it seeks to ensure the traceability of tax assets and enforces transparency in the taxation system, thereby increasing government revenue.”

According to him, the eNaira, a digital currency issued and regulated by the Central Bank of Nigeria, provides consumers and end-users with quick, safe, and simple trading and transactional opportunities.
