Senate Confirms Emefiele as New Governor, CBN

Godwin-Emefiele-360x225Nigeria’s Senate on Wednesday confirmed Mr Godwin Emefiele as the new Governor,Central Bank of Nigeria,CBN .He succeeds Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.
Actually ,it may be Mrs Sarah Alade who will hand over to Emefiele in June since the Federal Government appointed as the acting Governor CBN following the suspension of Lamido by President Goodluck Jonathan.
Emefiele’s tenure as CBN governor is bound to come under closer watch as most Nigerians and global financial operators will be anxious to see the level of independence he can muster in the face of an apparently overbearing influence of the presidency on the apex bank.
Until his appointment ,Emefiele was the Group Managing Director of Zenith Bank Plc ,one of the most prominent new generation banks in the country.
