The Governor of the Bank of Nigerian CBN, Godwin Emefiele has denied the recent rumours of his sack.
There have been rumours that the Central bank Governor has been asked by President Muhammadu Buhari to vacate his office on terminal leave, months before the end of his tenure.
However, Dr. Emefiele reacting to this denied the development while talking to journalists at a meeting with textile industry stakeholders in Abuja today.
The CBN Governor said that there is no truth in the rumours. He cited that his tenure will end in June and he is going to remain in the office performing his roles in the good interest of the nation’s economy.
He was quoted as saying;
“At least you can see me and you have seen my work. My tenure expires in June and at least let’s continue.
“The intervention programmes of the Central Bank of Nigeria has been on since 1978 and it has moved from governor to another governor and I am very optimistic that even if another governor comes, no right-thinking person will abandon an initiative that is laudable and meant to create jobs for the good of our country.” He said.
Emefiele was appointed as Central Bank Governor on June 3, 2014, and his tenure which lasts for five years is expected to end in June this year.
