Cardoso, who outlined his policy thrust told bankers that Nigeria could grow in size to $1 trillion over the next seven years and that lenders required additional capital to play in a bigger economy, he said in the commercial hub of Lagos, late on Friday.

He said he would focus on rebuilding trust at the regulator, manage liquidity to curb inflation, bring down high interest rates and stabilise the exchange rate.

“The Central Bank of Nigeria is fully committed to ensuring price stability and financial system stability,” Cardoso said.
