The Niger Delta Peace Agitators (NDPA) has said that the reappointment of Mr. Godwin Emefiele as the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor by President Muhammadu Buhari was a confirmation that the President is ‘economy friendly’ and also a non tribalist.
The spokesperson of the group, Ambassador Kenule Nwiya, made the remark while speaking with newsmen in Abuja on Monday. He commended the President for the reappointment.
Kenule appealed to Emefiele to continue with the Anchor Borrowers Programme (ABP) and other initiatives that will enhance national development and economic stability in his second tenure.
Amb. Kenule Nwiya called on President Buhari to remain bold in consolidating on his performance and polices especially on the ban on items that can be produced locally to encourage local production.
He also urged the government to ensure that interest rates and inflation were further reduced, while protection should be given to Nigerian banking customers by steadily vetting the commercial banks.
“Since 1999, nobody had been able to get a second term as CBN Governor but Emefiele has gotten it. So, it is a remarkable development for the Niger Delta Region and Nigeria at large,” he added.
