1.Good night distinguished Women and Gents. And thanks very a lot for the very heat reception accorded us right here immediately. By now, I’m positive everybody is aware of how I really feel about this annual dinner, as a result of since I grew to become Governor of the CBN over seven 12 months in the past, that is maybe the one occasion I’ve by no means missed in any respect. So to underscore how necessary this occasion is to me, immediately is my seventh consecutive Keynote tackle on the Chartered Institute of Bankers (CIBN) annual dinner.
2.It’s due to this fact an important pleasure for me to be right here immediately as a result of it supplies a veritable platform and a big alternative for me to interact with all stakeholders particularly, professionals, practitioners and specialists within the banking and Finance group. This dinner is an event to focus on necessary developments in our financial system and apprise you of the coverage initiatives and focus of the Central Financial institution of Nigeria in the direction of realizing the last word targets of Macroeconomic and monetary Stability.
