Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr Lamido Sanusi has asked the federal government to come up with sound policies in the education sector which he says is a prerequisite to address the spate of insecurity in the country.

Mr Sanusi who spoke at a meeting in Abuja said that over three per cent of girls in northern Nigeria who start school fail to complete their education.

And as a way of empowering the nation’s women, he said that the apex bank came up with a recommendation that will ensure that 30 per cent of board members of banks are women.
