CBN acting gov tasks staff on success of bank's policies, programmes

By The Citizen

The Acting Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Dr Sarah Alade, has urged staff of the bank to ensure the success of the bank's policies and programmes.

This is contained in a statement issued on Saturday in Abuja by Mr Isaac Okoroafor, the bank's Deputy Director, Corporate Communications.

It quoted the acting governor as saying, while addressing staff at the bank's headquarters in Abuja on Friday, that the sudden management change should not discourage them from doing their jobs.

'We have to move on because the whole world is watching us to deliver on the statutory mandate of the bank,' she said.

Alade reminded members of staff that the CBN had gone through thick and thin in the past, listing the struggle for the bank's autonomy as one of the challenges surmounted.

She said the present situation demands unity and avoidance of rumour-peddling to pursue the bank's policies and programmes.

'We have also had some difficult moments, but collectively we must move on with our heads up, and resolve to build the Central Bank of our expectation,' the acting governor said.

Alade expressed optimism that the CBN would emerge from the ongoing transition to a better positioned bank.

The statement said the staff pledged their unalloyed support to the management of the bank in its resolve to deliver on its mandate.(NAN)
