The Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN Governor Godwin Emefiele says the road ahead of the country’s economy is still rough, urging Nigerians to pray for the President Buhari’s administration.

Emefiele stated this in Abuja when he was screened by the Senate following his nomination for a second term by the President.

Members of the Senate Committee on Banking, Insurance and other Financial Institutions questioned Emefiele on various issues affecting the economy.

Responding to some comments by members of the panel, the CBN Governor said there were Nigerians bent on sabotaging the economy by creating loopholes in government policies.

Emefiele also raised concerns over the country’s rising population without commensurate economic prosperity.
