Godwin Emefiele, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), has stated his intention to see that when he leaves office, Nigeria’s economy is restored to where it was when he was a teenager.
On Tuesday Morning, Emefiele said this while speaking on an Arise TV program.
Nigeria, he claims, possesses the resources necessary to succeed and return the country to its former grandeur.
“If through our policies we can just return or move Nigeria close to what it was when I was growing up, then I can leave office look back and thank God that we left something for our children.
Nigeria is a great country, with resources enough to be self-sufficient and no need to rely heavily on oil to provide for the economy this is why we are focusing on diversifying the economy,” he said.
