A former deputy governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Tunde Lemo has asked Nigerians to invest more in governance by asking questions and participating fully in legislations before they are passed into laws.
- Lemo gave the advice at a national workshop by the Yaba College of Technology Alumni Association to mark the 70th anniversary of the institution in Lagos.
- He said many laws had been passed to regulate Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and other businesses without the inputs or knowledge of players and stakeholders in the sectors.
- Lemo said condemning laws after they have been passed is undesirable.
- “Before these laws came into being, the National Assembly, I’m sure, published the proceedings, even calling on people to send their inputs. But as usual, people remained complacent until the act became law,” he pointed out.
