ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Mohammed Ndume, has urged the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to focus more on monetary stability, the exchange rate and curb galloping inflation in the country.
Ndume said this in a statement in Abuja on Thursday.
He called on the CBN Governor, Yemi Cardoso, to focus on his job, rather than dwelling on trivialities.
“The CBN governor should focus on stabilising the economy rather than dwelling on relocation of departments to an already-populated Lagos,” he said.
Ndume said that his comments against the relocation of some departments of the CBN to Lagos, were based on reality and the irrelevance of the action by the leadership of the Apex Bank
The lawmaker said that since his intervention, some elements had been using a section of the media to attack his personality and question the credentials of his daughter who was a staff member of the CBN.
He said that as a lawmaker, his daughter and children were qualified to work in any government agency as long as they had the needed credentials.
Ndume said the subtle blackmail would not deter him from pointing out lapses in government.
