Opening Pleasantries- Good evening distinguished ladies and gentlemen. It is indeed a pleasure to be with you this evening, and to use this occasion to step back from the day-to-day concerns of inflation, external reserves and exchange rate, to consider a number of the deep-seated, long term factors shaping Nigeria's economy. I am also delighted at the opportunity to once again address a gathering of eminent personalities, which includes critical stakeholders in our nation's financial sector, as well as members of the Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria.
