Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Godwin Emefiele has emphasised the need to strengthen efforts over the coming years to stimulate growth and create jobs in critical sectors to insulate the economy from global shocks.

Emefiele said this while giving a welcome address at a consultative round-table titled, “Going for Growth” with some economic stakeholders in Lagos.

The CBN boss said that leaders and policy makers need to strengthen their resolve in achieving the goal.

He also said, that would assist in putting in place unconventional policies that would help insulate the economy from shocks in the global economy.

The CBN governor said in doing that, the CBN had recently been caught in a syndrome termed; ‘The Dilemma of Monetary Policy in Nigeria’. The Lagos State Governor, BabajideSanwo-Olu in his opening remarks, said the state would continue to support the CBN’s drive in ensuring continuous economic growth
