President Muhammadu Buhari has met with the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, and the Nigerian Governor’s Forum behind closed door.
The meeting which was held at the State House Abuja came amid protests in many parts of the country over the unavailability of Naira notes.
Chairman of the Progressive Governor’s Forum, Atiku Bagudu, the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa; as well as the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen Lucky Irabor also attended the meeting at the State House, Abuja.
The presence of the CBN Governor, however, indicated the meeting was organised ostensibly to discuss the cash swap policy which has elicited public outcry, particularly from the Governors.
Recall that Buhari had earlier asked Nigerians for seven days to resolve the issue of naira scarcity.
