In praise of Godwin Emefiele at 60

By Issa Aremu

THE 11th second-term running Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, turns 60 on Wednesday, August 4.

As a sexagenarian myself, I bear witness to the significance of the gift of worthy six-decade life in an ever precarious world of insecurity and COVID-19 pandemic with its notorious Delta variant.

Emefiele’s inspiring profile is a delight of writers and members of commentariat alike. There are enough positive word counts on the life and indelible landmarks of a multiple degrees holder in Finance and insurance, former lecturer at the first generation University of Nigeria Nsukka, an alumnus of Executive Education at Stanford University, Harvard University (2004) and Wharton School of Business (2005) and former Group Managing Director of a leading bank in Africa: Zenith Bank. Emefiele was born on August 4, 1961 in Lagos.

His parents originally hailed from Ika South, Agbor of Delta State. A confluence of “Centre of Excellence” (Lagos) and a “Big heart” (Delta) makes a great compatriot in whom many Nigerians are at home with. Young Emefiele attended primary education in Government Primary School, Victoria Island (formerly Ansar-U-Den Primary School, Igbosere), Lagos, before proceeding to Maryland Comprehensive Secondary School, Ikeja, Lagos.

Emefiele’s cosmopolitan disposition, humility, modesty, fairness to all and tenacity of policy purpose and focus point to the strength of multiple identities in a diverse Federal Republic like Nigeria. I agree with the American talk show host, television producer, author, and philanthropist, Oprah Winfrey that “The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate”.

The essential Emefiele is an activist 11th CBN Governor (Bankers’ Banker) and Development Central Banker. Seven years after eventful activist independent central banking, Emefiele has cut a commendable clout as a Governor with an eye on the bigger picture of the economy. He has remarkably balanced the Bank’s mandate of monetary and price stability, with the development objectives of national economy. In seven years, CBN has recorded significant successes with respect to price and financial stability and macro economics despite the pressures of centrifugal forces. First is his prompt agenda setting.

Appointed in 2014, by former President Goodluck Jonathan, Emefiele in his inaugural speech espoused “Entrenching Macroeconomic Stability and a Engendering Economic Development in Nigeria.” On reappointment by President Muhammadu Buhari he consolidated on the achievements of the first tenure through his popularized five-year policy thrust for another term of five years (2019-2024). The CBN within the context of its enabling Act continues to maintain sound financial structure, promote monetary stability, safeguard the value of Naira and stable exchange rate, proving to be a financial adviser to the federal government in the areas of price and exchange rate management, development financing, building foreign reserves and employment creation.

On Exchange rate management, there have been creative interventionist measures which include flexible exchange rates (in interbank market) to multiple windows FX management for whole sale, invisible, small and medium enterprises (SME) and Investors/Exporters windows. Rate stability is the constant factor.

Notwithstanding a sharp drop in crude oil prices, and reduction in Nigeria’s oil production quota, as well as the significant decline in government revenue and foreign exchange earnings as a result of the impact of two recessions in quick successions in addition to COVID-19 impact on the nation’s economy, exchange rate stabilizes at N410/$.

Exchange rate availability allows for planning and investment decisions. CBN had consistently resisted the pressures to return to “staggering and undulating foreign exchange rate in relation to the naira due to pressures by speculators, bettors, round-trippers and rent-seekers.” The 11th CBN governor, Godwin Emefiele had long seen tomorrow well before COVID-19. In promoting import substitution through development financing, CBN rightly removed some 43 imported goods from the list of some items valid for Forex Exchange in the Nigerian Foreign Exchange Market.

I agree with the governor that “it is our collective duty to ensure that the potential and prospects of the economy are optimally realised. The ongoing economic recovery requires the joint efforts and wise counsel of everyone, if we must take giant strides forward.”

Therefore, beyond the creative monetary measures of the CBN, the fiscal authorities with respect to electricity supply, fighting smuggling and dumping (customs department), curbing insecurity, trade policies must compliment with new activist measures that would boost domestic manufacturing.

Many Happy returns to a co-sexagenarian!.

Chief Ibude tasks illustrious indigenes on synergy with Monarch

Member of the Delta State Justice of the Peace Association and a respected community leader, Chief Sunday Solomon Ibude, the Mebuzosonme Dein of Agbor kingdom, and the Odozi Obodo of Ejime Aniogor, has called on all illustrious indigenes of Agbor kingdom, both at home and in the diaspora, to partner with their king, HRM, Dr Benjamin Ikenchuku Keagborekuzi 1, the Dein of Agbor, so as to effectively develop the kingdom.

Chief Ibude made the call while speaking to newsmen in Agbor over the weekend on the sustainable development of the agrarian community.He explained that the need for the call can not be overemphasized, pointing out that it will be unpatriotic for indigenes who are power brokers, and political giants not to show concern as to the moving forward of Agbor kingdom while positing that the betterment of Agbor should not be solely the responsibility of king.

He also said working in synergy with the monarch would boost the desired development of the kingdom with reference to both socio-economic development, insecurity and youth restiveness.According to him, “Agbor is our only home and its development is sacrosanct. We cannot leave it for outsiders to come and develop for us. Hence, we have to take responsibility.

“Agbor is blessed with lots of illustrious sons and daughters living outside the kingdom, but the questions are, how much have they done to encourage the development of the kingdom? How many companies have they established in Agbor to improve the economy of the land? or how well have they build the youths of the land? This, to me, does not strike balance.

“Agbor kingdom is for all of us and not divided by any group. We need to stop fighting ourselves, stop the eye-service practice and always see ourselves as one with equal right.

“We should stop blaming Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for doing more for his own immediate community (Owa) because we, the Agbor people also have the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr. Godwin Emefiele.“Agbor has both human and natural minerals resources which if properly harness, could take the kingdom to her Eldorado.”

Speaking further, Ibude called on the political class in Agbor to stop playing politics with sentiments, pointing out that their misgivings through partisanship or by way of ‘party is supreme’, was also dragging the kingdom behind.

He also called on the Nigerian Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. LEO Irabor, to help recruit willing Agbor youths into the military while supporting the unemployed in the land.

“Therefore, I am using this medium to appeal to all and sundry of Agbor kingdom to partner with our respected king who needs everybody to make Agbor kingdom a better place for all,” Chief Ibude added.He concluded with words of prayers for the land and for the king to live long on the seat of his ancestors.
