Go Away!! You Can’t Address Us, Senate Committee Tells Emefiele’s Representatives


Representatives of the Central Bank of Nigeria Governor, Godwin Emefiele, who were billed to address the Senate Committee on Finance on the rationale behind the exchange rates it used for three key projects under the Presidential Infrastructure Development Fund were on Monday turned back.

The Senate Committee that refused to allow the representatives to address them on the issue, had on Sunday invited the CBN Governor to appear before it on Monday November 4, but Emefiele, instead sent the Deputy Governor Operations, Mr Adebisi Shonubi, to represent him.

Led by the Chairman, Solomon Adeola, the Committee members, however, refused to allow the Deputy Governor address them, saying that the invitation was not meant for him.

The panel, which also noted that Emefiele had failed to inform it earlier that he would be sending a representative, therefore, insisted that Emefiele must appear before the committee on Wednesday, November 6.
