It’s now very obvious that we have been gifted with an ‘agbero’ CBN Governor.
Come and fight me inside CBN he declared. He looked at his ‘enemy’ squarely through his ugly glasses and declared, ‘ anybody who wants to fight should come and fight’
My people this is a new low in our monetary policy. The seeming inability to hold down the Naira and stop its aggressive push towards N1,000 per dollar is really weighing down on this baba.
He has lost composure and has shown what you don’t show in a fight like this – frustration.
Declaring a fight on a website on an issue that affects the largest economy in Africa is peadophilistic. It’s stupidly narrow and in saner climes, he should be facing the Senate answering some very tough questions.
My brother Governor, this is beyond Aboki, who just reports what’s happening in the parallel market. It solves the risk you take in going into the dark alleys to meet real-life Aboki to be transacting simply because you cannot get the fx in mainstream distribution platforms as continually advertised
Isn’t it clear that an import-dependent, mono product, crazed elites, no production capacity economy would be facing this at this time?
By the time, you add the looming elections with politicians ‘need to horde forex’ for that fight you begin to understand that the problem is far bigger than a stupid website.
Let’s arrest the Aboki man, corrupt his website and put a virus inside, and see our Naira begin to gain strength. how absurd.
I really do not know why otherwise very brilliant people behave like tomatoes sellers at Oyinbgo market.
Trying to play to the gallery by going on air to make all those statements is just funny. It’s like having Pinocchio come and discuss major economic issues
Look, trying to paper the cracks in the economy by pushing forex through banks without building capacity to increase the supply side is just a bloody waste of time and we have been wasting this time since I was born
Let’s immediately push as many Nigerians out there to go earn this forex I have screamed. This is the immediate short to the mid-term solution.
Let the doctors go to Saudi Arabia. Let’s ramp up the diaspora receipts. Let’s ease the inflow of forex and continue the red tape and inefficiency of the outflow esp on irritating things like foreign shopping and luxury goods
Let’s build better schools so that we can overturn the current craze for international education and medical, same thing
But much more importantly, let’s go on an export drive. Close down the economy a bit so that we can reflate.
Boost agriculture, send out funds to export-oriented goods, support the entertainment industry it can bring in the dollars and push.
This is not a call to fight. How many will you fight? This is like a brother going round the block fighting every man that has slept with his promiscuous sister. By the end of the day, he would have fought almost every man in the area including his pastor.
Please Mr. Governor stops looking for people to fight. The fight is really staring you in the face.
Get to work. Build a holistic political-economic structure that would bring all areas of interest at the monetary and fiscal levels to work together in finding a lasting solution to this matter.
This no is Oshodi bustop oga this is the economy. It’s 200m lives. Stop the games.
Duke of Shomolu
