President Buhari Meets Emefiele, Tambuwal, Bagudu Over Naira Scarcity

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday met privately with the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Aminu Tambuwal; and the Chairman of the Progressives Governors’ Forum, Atiku Bagudu over the scarcity of the new Naira notes across the country. 

Also in attendance at the meeting was the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele; the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa; as well as the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen Lucky Irabor.

The meeting originally scheduled with the Nigerian Governors’ Forum was canceled, for reasons not clearly stated, Channels Television reports. 

The presence of the CBN governor, however, gave indications that the meeting was organised ostensibly to discuss the cash swap policy which has for days elicited public outcry, particularly from the governors.
