The Governor and Management of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on Thursday evening expressed “a deep sense of loss” over the passage of Mallam Adamu Ciroma, who died earlier in the day. He was the Governor of the Bank from September 24, 1975, to June 28 1977.

Mallam Ciroma was born on November 20, 1934, in Potiskum, Yobe State. He was a graduate of University of Ibadan and served in different capacities in the Public Service. He was appointed to the Board of the Central Bank of Nigeria in 1970 where he served as a Director before his appointment as the Governor in 1975. He also served as Minister in the Ministries of Industry, Agriculture and Finance and on the Board of several companies.

CBN said in a statement: “Until his demise, Mallam Ciroma was still of immense service to the Bank. He was a firm believer in the sanctity and independence of the CBN.

“While we mourn the loss of a very good man, an astute central banker and a patriot, we also celebrate his remarkable life and contribution to the banking industry in Nigeria.

“He is survived by his wife and children and has since been buried according to Islamic rites.

“We pray Almighty Allah to grant his family and the nation the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.”
