Godwin Emefiele Promotes Recession by Deliberately Denying Nigerian Masses Access to Money


The Central Bank governor Godwin Emefiele has categorically rejected demands by Kaduna Governor Nasir El-Rufai, Finance Minister Kemi Adeosun and yours truly, for the CBN to reduce interest rates to enable small businesses have access to funds to ease the recession and promote growth.

He further said: “But we said we are not going to allow the banks to really have the cash until they send proposals to the CBN for primary agric projects, new manufacturing projects and other projects that will spur industrial capacity and manufacturing output."
