Non-provision Of Foreign Exchange: “leave CBN Alone” — Moghalu Tells Buhari by Priscy01(f): 7:34am On Aug 14
Kingsley Moughalu, a former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has faulted President Buhari's directive on non-provision of foreign exchange for food importation.

Recall that President Buhari while hosting APC Governors at his hometown in Daura, said his directive to the CBN to starve food importation of foreign exchange stemmed from the steady improvement in agricultural production and attainment of full food security.

However the former Presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) rubbished President Buhari's order and further pointed out that the CBN is an independent body which should be left alone to discharge its functions, Igbere TV reports.

Moughlau stated that the political interference in CBN's economic policies leads to poverty and also weakens institutions.

He tweeted;
“Is @cenbank now a ministry to be “directed” by President @MBuhari ? Article 1(3) of the CBN Act 2007 states ‘In order to facilitate the achievement of its mandate under this Act…the Bank shall be an independent body in the discharge of its functions.

“The issue here isn’t whether or not CBN should allow access to forex for food imports. It is about whether such an economic policy of a central bank should be imposed by a political authority. A major reason for our poverty, instability and weak economy is weak institutions.

“Our marketplace should be regulated and guided in a rational manner that creates a level playing field. Our economy will not be saved by Ad Hoc political decisions like this, handed down by the very institutions that should be shielded from the whim and caprice of politicians.

“Nigeria’s entire economy appears to have been sub-contracted to our central bank, including industrial and trade policy. In the process the economy has fared poorly and the Bank has lost its independence. This is sad!

“@NGRPresident should leave @cenbank alone to discharge its mandate independently within the ambit of the CBN Act, and stop “directing” it. @cenbank should on its part assertive its independence (assuming it actually believes it should be independent, but the Act says so, clearly!”

Stupid Government. The aim is to create artificial scarcity and leave an impression that without Fulani presence, hunger will kill Nigerians. In the process they will indirectly make case for RUGA. Look everything that this administration does is to implement RUGA. That is its only agenda.

Foolish youths aplenty in Nigeria. The president that's working to improve the Nigerian economy by discouraging importation of foods that can be locally produced is who they're cursing.

Look at this wannabe presidential candidate who doesn't know a thing about governance speaking rubbish. I get it that, to be in the news you just have to oppose Buhari especially when you have lazy youths to applaud you.

Nonsense!


Someone is telling me about allowing CBN to be independent and I ask: who gets the blame if everything goes bad? Wasn't it the same Emefiele that released unappropriated billions to Dasuki and GEJ to loot in the name of fighting insurgency? Who bore the brunt? Not Nigerians?

Moghalu just wants to be heard. He is empty!

Barondenigeria:


You clearly have no formal education! If you had the slightest idea of basic economics, you would understand that a CBN restriction on forex for food importers will lead these importers to the black market where they would buy the dollar at higher rates. That cost will be shifted to we the consumers and eventually you'll have a "commodity price inflation".

Many of you Buharists are fantastically dull!
You are talking rubbish. How best do you encourage local production/producers other than making imported foods more expensive by restricting access to govt dollars? Wannabe Economist!

CBN should not be entirely left alone because the president receives all the blames of economic misfortune.

Moreover, the directive is a welcome development and should be extended to pilgrimage, medical and education trips abroad by all political holders and their families.

When I think of how Nigeria would have soared with brilliant minds like Moghalu, Adeshina, Ngozi & Co. running her affairs, I'm moved to tears.

What we have now is a government of the Imbeciles, by the Imbeciles, and for the Imbeciles.

Hmmmm....

CBN is an independent body, you say? I laugh. This is a fall out of ministerial [b]dis[/b]appointment o.

So CBN should operate outside the policy thrust of the government, abi?

Do you know what transpired before the CBN governor was reappointed?

I would have taken you serious if you advised they brainstorm well before policy directive and announcement .

Nonsense!

What are you saying? There is a reason why the Central Bank should be an independent body to prevent Political Interference. Kingsley Moghalu has explained clearly that political interference is wrong and the Banking institution should know its stance for the better of the economy.

After such explanation you write this. Shows you did not spend time to read the article to get the Former Presidential Candidates point.

Moghalu is 100% right and this is an eye opener. Stand for the truth and not sentiments.

So the President who is vested with the power to appoint and also sack the CBN governor can not give directions to it. So the President should watch as the CBN policies destroy his promises to the people. Oga park well.

This buhari’s decision lacks sincerity. They may take this decision today, and start to release money secretly tomorrow. The same thing they said about fuel subsidy, now subsidy is back.
