Kenule appealed to Emefiele to continue with the Anchor Borrowers Programme (ABP) and other initiatives that will enhance national development and economic stability in his second tenure.
Amb. Kenule Nwiya called on President Buhari to remain bold in consolidating on his performance and polices especially on the ban on items that can be produced locally to encourage local production.
He also urged the government to ensure that interest rates and inflation were further reduced, while protection should be given to Nigerian banking customer by steadily vetting the commercial banks.
