The Senate has confirmed the reappointment of the governor of the Central Bank, Godwin Emefiele.

This followed the presentation of report of the Committee on Banking, Insurance and Other Financial Institutions, during the plenary, on Thursday, on the renewal of the Appointment of Godwin I. Emefiele as Governor Central Bank of Nigeria by the committee Chairman Senator Rafiu Adebayo.

Senate President, Bukola Saraki, speaking on the development, said: “On behalf of the Senate, let me congratulate the Governor of the Central Bank, Mr. Godwin Emefiele on the renewal of his appointment”.

Recall that yesterday while Emefiele appeared before Senate Committee on Banking and Finance, he was commended for his achievements in spear heading the country’s economic fortunes during his first term in office.

He was equally urged not to rest on his oars but aim to avoid the economic pitfalls of the past five years.

President Muhammadu Buhari, it will be recalled, had last week requested through a letter senate’s confirmation on the re-appointment of Godwin Emefiele as Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
