This result has caused mixed controversies in Nigeria and now keeps #Google trending number one on Twitter. Many have accredited the alleged rise of Nigerian naira as part of the surprises associated with the 2019 elections in Nigeria.
Musa Ibrahim, a BDC operator, who spoke to TheCable from Lagos Island, said he bought $20,000 from the CBN at 357 per dollar.
“We collected from CBN today at the rate of N357, and each BDC operator is entitled to $20, 000,” he said.
Two members of staff at Google, who spoke off the record, confirmed to that this was just a bug, that is currently being fixed.
This is indeed a bug that has caused more than a threat to data integrity. It has put an entire nation into amiss and built undue anxiety as the populace head to the polling booths to elect a new president tomorrow.
