“ did N20; he did N100, N200, N500 and N1000. He has introduced higher denomination than any Head of States,” Mr Sanusi said.
The CBN governor said that during the period Mr Obasanjo was introducing high denomination inflation in Nigeria was actually low.
“General Obasanjo did N100 in 1999; then he did N200 in 2000; he did N500 I think two years later; and did N1000. In that period, inflation was coming down because it was accompanied by very tight monetary and fiscal policies during his reforms.
“For somebody who have gone through that to come and stand up and say ‘introducing a higher denomination causes inflation’ I don’t know if somebody wrote his speech. I’m trying to see him or if he was misquoted.
“If he actually said that then he must be the single mostof inflation in our history given the number of notes that he introduced,” he said
