2023: I\’ll support Buhari to finish strong – Emefiele
Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress
Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, has vowed to support the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to finish strong.
Emefiele said that his focus at this point is to formulate a robust monetary policy and fight inflation which is now a global problem.
The CBN boss said that part of his focus is also to build a strong financial system in an increasingly uncertain global economy.
He made this known on his official Twitter account on Monday in an apparent reaction to calls for him to run for the presidency of the country in 2023.
Emefiele listed other areas of focus to include development finance and supporting farmers and manufacturers in the bank’s self-sufficiency and import substitution as well as raising N15 trillion for Infrastructure Corporation of Nigeria (InfraCo) infrastructure finance.
Emefiele said that the apex bank is building a world-class international financial centre in Lagos as well as supporting President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to finish strong.
Emefiele’s tweet posts reads, “My focus at this time is a robust monetary policy and fighting inflation which is now a global problem, building a strong financial system in an increasingly uncertain global economy.
‘’Development finance and supporting farmers and manufacturers in our self-sufficiency and import substitution drive, raising N15 trillion for InfraCo infrastructure finance, building a world class international financial centre in Lagos, as we support the Muhammadu Buhari administration to finish strong.’’
