On Monday 14 August 2023, we said that popular cleric, Pastor Tunde Bakare, said that though the former Governor of the CBN, Godwin Emefiele, may have made wrong judgment calls in the management of Nigeria’s monetary policy, he must not be made a scapegoat, adding that considering the provisions of the CBN Act 2007, there is every possibility that Emefiele did not act without presidential authorisation.

And we asked what your take was on Lukman’s submission?

60% agreed, 40% disagreed.
