President Muhammadu Buhari is ‘economy friendly’ and not tribalistic, the Niger Delta Peace Agitators said on Monday after the reappointment of Mr Godwin Emefiele as the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor.

Ambassador Kenule Nwiya, the Spokesperson of the group, briefed news men in Abuja on Monday and commended the President for the reappointment.

Kenule appealed to Emefiele to continue with the Anchor Borrowers Programme (ABP) and other initiatives that will enhance national development and economic stability in his second tenure, according to a statement sent to TODAY NEWS AFRICA in Washington D.C.

According to him, President Buhari should remain bold in consolidating on his performance and polices, especially on the ban on items that can be produced locally to encourage local production.

He urged the government to ensure that interest rates and inflation were further reduced, while protection should be given to Nigerian banking customer by steadily vetting the commercial banks.

Since 1999, nobody had been able to get a second term as governor but he has gotten it. So, it is a remarkable development for the Niger Delta Region and Nigeria at large,” he added.
