Godwin Emefiele - Bella Naija

Zenith Bank boss Godwin Emefiele, has been appointed as the new governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). The Senate on Wednesday, confirmed the appointment.

“Emefiele will ensure the prerequisite responsibilities of the central bank governor without fear or favour,” said Senate President, David Mark. 

According to Vanguard Newspaper, Emefiele was not very well known outside the banking industry until his name was presented. He was reportedly regarded as “a low-profile, conservative figure who was unlikely to rock the boat.”

President Goodluck Jonathan suspended ex-CBN governor, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi on February 20th, due to financial misconduct.

      Joker. U’re ignorant and you don’t even realize it. I’m agnostic so I have no Christian or Muslim leanings. U just need to go out and educate yourself. Let’s see how this new guy does with inflation, stabilizing the economy etc. if he does his job well then I don’t care if he worships the moon. That’s his own business and that’s what you shld be concerned with and not petty BS.

      After some nonentities will say edDREAMZ is always being bullied. With comments like these, shall we fold our arms and not type a retort?

      EdDREAMZ this isn’t funny anymore, please do try to inform, educate and enlighten yourself on as many aspects of life as possible. You can’t really be carrying on like this, it’s cause for concern. You have internet access, use it wisely.

    Dear edDreamz, when I started my working, I asked questions a lot, not work related questions though but questions on topics some of my colleagues argue about. But then I learnt that, if I don’t have a basic knowledge of what topic they argued about, i’ll rather ask questions than interfere and at the end of the day sound un intelligent. My dear friend, Google is your friend. Ask Google before you post any comment. And No! I’m not a Muslim, Islamic banking is more than religion or what some Christians believe. The new CBN governor is not there to stop islamic banking rather he, if he has the heart of the people will help with our economic growth, encourage foreign investment, Naira will have value again, Trust u know what d current exchange rate is? . Those are just very few points out of many he can do as d CBN governor.

    The problem with the caption is that the Senate CANNOT appoint a new CBN Governor. It is legally impossible. By that I mean the law provides that it is the President that APPOINTS subject to APPROVAL of the Senate.

    The 10-point agenda of the Governor of Central Bank are welcome ideas that may help to reduce poverty in Nigeria greatly. We want to collaborate with the CBN on the rears of setting up trainees on chain-value sustainable agriculture that will lead to establishment of at least 10 industries in EACH STATE if we are so considered.. About 52%of small and medium scale industries dominate the economy in Europe
