Prepare For Tough Time, CBN Gov Emefiele Tells Nigerians

Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele has advised Nigerians to prepare for a “challenging time”, saying the road ahead is still very tough.

Igbere TV reports that Emefiele spoke on Wednesday while he appeared before Senate’s Committee on Banking, Insurance and other Financial Institutions for screening for his second term as CBN Governor.

President Muhammadu Buhari had last week nominated Emefiele for a second term and transmitted same to the National Assembly for confirmation.

Emefiele said the CBN would continue to do its best.

According to him, “the road ahead is still very tough.”

He said Nigeria has workable policies but “implementation has been neglected because we see sabotaged activities.

“CBN will ensure that those who seek to undermine the policies of Nigeria will be brought to book. Pray for us because the road ahead is tough.”
