SENATE SUMMONS EMEFIELE AS NAIRA CONTINUES TO DEPRECIATE AGAINST DOLLAR

162

The Senate has summoned the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, to explain the reasons for the rapid depreciation of the value of the naira.

It has also mandated its Committee on Banking, Insurance and Other Financial Institutions to assess the impact of CBN intervention funds meant to support critical sectors of the economy with the naira exchanging for more than N700 to a dollar in the parallel markets.

The Upper chamber is taking these resolutions after federal legislators considered a motion on the state of CBN Intervention funds and the free fall of the naira.

The sponsor of the motion Senator Olubunmi Adetunmbi bemoaned Nigeria’s economic challenges and called for extraordinary measures to address them.
