Coalition of Civil Societies and Media Executives for Good Governance in Nigeria (COCMEGG), an umbrella body of several civil society groups, NGOs, activists, and media executives in Nigeria will bestow a prestigious honour on the CBN governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, as the “Most Distinguished CBN Governor of the Decade,” at the CBN headquarters, scheduled for December 19, 2017.
This was contained in a statement issued yesterday in Abuja by President of COCMEGG, Omoba Kenneth Aigbegbele.
COCMEGG advocates for transparency, accountability and good governance regime.
The statement read in part: “Emefiele’s performance since he assumed leadership in CBN is legendary. The rebounded economy in the possible shortest time is outstanding; the repositioning of the apex bank in terms of ICT, monetary policy directions and financial tools has greatly assisted the country’s economy and stability in the global market.
“The global positive rating of Nigeria today is as a result of the policy framework put in place by the apex body.
“Emefiele’s tireless sacrifices in putting the country first rather than self has paid off greatly; the CBN governor has advanced the regulatory body’s values and culture through good corporate governance and transparency that has kept the economy on track.”
Continuing, it read: “The high ethical professionalism attained through transparency and the high degree of accountability in the financial sector of the country is unparallel, coupled with the apex bank’s policy thrust and framework through exponential growth and phenomenal profitability.
“The CBN has witnessed increased global rating by rating agencies on banks and other financial institutions, boost customers’ confidence and the nation’s belief in the CBN to rejuvenate the system and build a roadmap for the economic stability and sustainability of the country.
“COCMEGG recognises Mr. Godwin Emefiele as an asset to the present administration’s fight to boost and stabilise the economy and made a clarion call on banks and other financial institutions to support the transformational philosophy and development presently taking place at the CBN to block leakages from the system.”
