The governor of the central bank, Godwin Emefiele, has yet again neglected to appear before the House of Representatives to discuss the CBN’s policy on cash withdrawal limitations.
In a letter that was written by the Deputy Governor of Corporate Services, Edward Adamu, the CBN Governor indicated that he is currently abroad for business.
He promised to get in touch with the House at a suitable time.
“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.”
It should be recalled that the lawmakers repeatedly delayed the briefing because Mr. Emefiele was out of the country.
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.
He insisted that the CBN governor must appear or send a deputy governor in his stead
