Godwin Emefiele, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), has expressed optimism to restore Nigeria's economy to where it was when he was growing up. Emefiele revealed this while speaking on an Arise TV programme on Tuesday Morning. According to him, Nigeria has the resources to succeed, and restore the country to its former glory. “If through our policies we can just return or move Nigeria close to what it was when I was growing up, then I can leave office look back and thank God that we left something for our children. Nigeria is a great country, with resources enough to be self-sufficient and no need to rely heavily on oil to provide for the economy this is why we are focusing on diversifying the economy,” he said.
