A group, Pro Emefiele 2023, on Sunday, commended Mr. Godwin Emefiele, the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), for promoting agriculture and creating job opportunities for Nigerians.
Chairman of the group, Muhammad Yusuf-Omale,made the commendation during a press conference in Kaduna .
“He has promoted Agricultural development through Anchor Borrowers’ scheme, which has yielded great success in all parts of the country.
“One good example is the tremendous achievement in maize production by Maize Association of Nigeria (MAAN), which is launching the biggest maize pyramid in Kaduna,” he said.
According to Yusuf-Omale, the Anchor Borrowers Programme has empowered many youths by encouraging them to engage in agricultural activities.
He added that the CBN governor had prevented series of Naira devaluation and excess pressure on the Naira by introducing multiple exchange rate regimes, while building a strong financial system.
He explained that Emefiele had supported the oil and gas industry through intervention schemes that led to setting up of a new private refinery and other modular refineries in the country.
Yusuf-Omale stated that the CBN governor has the capability and ability to lead Nigeria to promise land, and urged Emefiele to contest for president of Nigeria in 2023.
“With these, we hereby urge Mr Godwin Ifeanyi Emefiele to contest for president of Federal Republic of Nigeria, to save our nation and our economy.
“We also urge all meaningful Nigerians to vote for a better Nigeria”, he said.
