The reverse of that is an invitation to policy somersault and a high level of unpredictability which is often inimical to good planning. Those who wanted a second term for the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) obviously canvassed the need for continuity based on the gains of the banking consolidation exercise of 2005. They were worried that a change of leadership at the apex bank would almost certainly result in a 180-degree turn in policy thrust in the nation's precarious banking system. But the school of ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

As an employer - and a concerned citizen - I personally don't agree with the ...
