CBN Governor speaks on Obaseki’s claims

Obaseki replied the Federal Government on Thursday: “Rather than play the Ostrich, we urge the government to take urgent steps to end the current monetary rascality so as to prevent the prevailing economic challenge from degenerating further.”

Emefiele, on Friday, said it would be irresponsible for any Central Bank to refuse to support its government when it is in need.

He said: “The concept of printing of money is about lending money and that is our job…It will be irresponsible for the CBN or any Central Bank or Fed to stand idle and refuse to support its government at a time like this. #Emefiele.”
