In a bid to revamp the Nigerian export markets, Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, has hinted on plans to meet with the Chief Executives of multinational companies in Nigeria.
Emefiele made the disclosure on Tuesday, during the meeting of the Bankers’ Committee, noting that the CBN is ready to encourage the revamp of Nigeria’s export sector through deliberate policies that would boost investment and job creation.
While decrying the situation where many Nigerian produce of export quality were waiting to be tapped, Emefiele said the CBN, in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, would ensure the facilitation of a reboot of the Nigerian export market.
The CBN Governor reiterated that the country had no choice but to diversify its economic base away from heavy reliance on crude oil, so that Nigerians can produce what they eat and eat what they produce.
