Godwin Emefiele, the governor of the central bank, has yet again neglected to show up before the House of Representatives to discuss the CBN’s cash withdrawal restriction policy.
The CBN Governor stated that he is now abroad on business in a letter that was prepared by the Deputy Governor of Corporate Services, Edward Adamu.
He promised to get in touch with the House at a suitable time.
It should be recalled that the lawmakers repeatedly delayed the briefing because Mr. Emefiele was out of the country.
“Regrettably, the governor is unavailable to brief the House of Representatives at this time, because he has other scheduled official engagements he is currently addressing abroad.
”Accordingly, he has requested that we respectively convey his inability to honour this invitation on the rescheduled date.
”The governor regrets this and will contact the House of Representatives as soon as he returns to the country from his official assignment,” the letter read in part.”
The House Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, responded to the letter by stating that the CBN governor must inform the House of his justification for traveling abroad for two weeks.
The CBN governor was required to show up in person or send a deputy governor in his place, he said.
