“The reason we are here is that when I took over as the Central Bank Governor, I realised that we have certain weaknesses, and to address those weaknesses, there is no better place than the Central Bank of Nigeria, that is why I brought my team to Abuja,” he said.
Mr. Emefiele who pledged to grant their demands, said, “we are willing to assist in printing your currency. We can be extremely competitive in terms of cost”.
