Co-founder of Access Bank, Aigboje Aig-imoukhuede who was the guest lecturer asked the monetary authorities to ease its monetary policies and manage the uncertainty issue around the foreign exchange for effective banking system.

“I do not believe that some of our policies are helping,” he said, adding, “We have to ease monetary policy and proactively manage the uncertainty around foreign exchange risk. We cannot bury our heads in the sand. We must stress test and ensure effective contingency planning. We must be proactive not reactive.”

Aig-imoukhuede said the Nigerian banking system is a huge highly flammable asset which is unfortunately in close proximity to several challenges capable of igniting a fire and we must take proactive steps to insulate this asset from the risks around us.
