Today at 10.00 am, I was at the Ayangbure Street, Ikorodu branch of Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB) to withdraw cash for payment of my staff salaries at ROMO Nigeria Co. Ltd. and my church, Gospel Church of C&S.
On presentation of the ROMO cheque, the most senior officer at the branch told me there was no cash.
I went down to the ATM section where over 50 people crowded the hall; I was told the ATM was not dispensing cash (either old or new).
I have just read online a directive from the CBN Governor that banks should pay a maximum of N20,000.00 out to customers on presentation of the teller.
It is now clear that the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, is making a dangerous and destructive history for Nigeria.
Since CBN was established in 1959 (and I was a foundation staff), no Governor has taken Nigeria for a ride as Emefiele.
The multiplier effect of his rather evil directive is to close down all businesses in Nigeria and further add to the hardship Nigerians are experiencing in recent times.
I make bold to state that unless this oppressive directive is withdrawn within the next 48 hours, Nigerian masses will have no choice but to rise and compel the Government to take positive action to reverse it.
Meanwhile, I sincerely call on Governor Emefiele to voluntarily resign NOW or face the wrath of the Nigerian masses.
