The newly appointed deputy governors of the Central Bank have been assigned their various offices. This was sequel to their assumption of duties on March 28.
According to the acting Director Corporate Communications of the bank, Isaac Okorafor, Aishah Ahmad will oversee the Financial System Stability Directorate, while Lamtek Adamu was assigned to Corporate Services .
The governor also approved redeployment of Dr Okwu Nnanna from the Financial System Stability Directorate to the Economic Policy Directorate.
Recall that the President in accordance with the provisions of Section 8(1) (2) of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) (Establishment) Act 2007, had earlier nominated two new Deputy Governors for the apex bank, their confirmation was however delayed because of the faceoff between the executive and legislature over the refusal of the presidency to sack the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Chairman, Ibrahim Magu as directed by the National Assembly.
The Senate however backed down on its earlier resolution and screened the two nominees for the deputy governor and members of the Monetary Policy Committee MPC.
The board of directors of the apex bank is chaired by the governor, Godwin Emefiele, while the four deputy governors serve as board members of the bank.
