President Muhammadu Buhari has met privately with the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Aminu Tambuwal; and Chairman of the Progressives Governors’ Forum, Atiku Bagudu, over the scarcity of the three naira notes.
Also in attendance at the meeting; the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele; the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa; as well as the Chief of Defence Staff, General Lucky Irabor.
The meeting held at the President’s office at the State House, Abuja.
The meeting originally scheduled with the Nigerian Governors’ Forum was cancelled, for reasons not clearly stated.
The presence of the CBN governor, however, gave indications that the meeting was organised apparently to discuss the cash swap policy which has for days elicited public outcry, particularly from the governors.
None of the participants at the meeting agreed to speak to the media.
