VANGUARD reports that Emefiele said, “We are happy that some of these policies that we introduced in the last couple of months in our attempt to rein in inflation are beginning to yield results, not just in plateauing but are beginning to drop.JAMB Result

“But MPC members feel that the 10 basis points drop from 21. 47% to 21.34% is just not good enough as a reason to begin to celebrate.

“We concluded that yes inflation rate was reducing, Year-on-Year, but the other underlining figures have not given us reasons to celebrate, as such we decided to be aggressive in our tightening.”

Speaking on the claims that CBN was holding N89 trillion Stamp Duty fund.

Emefiele said, “It beats our imagination that those arguments can come up. N89 trillion is so large. The total assets of the banking industry today is about N71 or N71.5 trillion. The total deposits of the banks is N44. 498 trillion.

“How then is it possible that Stamp duty of N89 trillion, that is twice the value of deposit of banks. How possible is that? Total Stamp Duty collected from 2016 to date is N370.686 billion.

“Out of this the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) has paid N226.462 billion to the Federation Accounts Allocation Committee (FAAC) leaving a balance of 144.234 billion in the CBN account”.NYSC portal
