Senate President, Bukola Saraki met with the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele and advised on how he could possibly curb corruption in Nigeria.

In a post on Facebook, Saraki said the senate was ready to back some of the recent CBN policies, advising him, to partner Nigeria Customs Services in a bid to save over N30billion.

“I believe the recent policies initiated on some selected items, particularly key ones that have to do with items like rice, chicken, palm oil and even in the area of textiles, are policies that we in the Senate will support and believe it is a good step that will help our economy.

“I advised him on need to collaborate with Customs to ensure that waivers given to some companies worth over 30 Billion must come back to government coffer so that Nigerians will know he is serious in making policies successful.

“Secondly is the issue of smuggling because no matter how good policies are, import substitution, if smuggling can still be going on the way it is going on now, these policies will not be successful especially the big smugglers that are well known, it is time this actions are taken to stop them from smuggling,” he said.
