“If you understand the concept of printing money, printing money is about lending money; that is our job. There is no need putting up the controversy of printing money as if we are going into the factory printing money and then distributing it on the street.

The CBN governor stoutly defended the printing of N60 billion, noting that the development shouldn’t be coloured differently from the Federal government intention.

“It is very inappropriate for people to just give some colouration to the word printing of money as if it is some foreign word coming from the sky.”

He said it would amount to act of irresponsibility for the Federal government not to finance its responsibilities whenever renue dropped.
