Buhari Waiting For Senate’s Approval For CBN Nominees
President Buhari has written to the Senate seeking approval for the appointment of Mrs. Aishah Ahmad as Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and members of the Monetary Policy Committee of the apex bank.
President Buhari on October 5, 2017 appointed Mrs Aishah Ahmad as the Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, subject to Senate Confirmation.
Buhari, in separate letters to President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, which was read at the chamber by Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, who presided over the plenary on Thursday, urged the lawmakers to approve the appointments.
“In accordance with the provisions of Section 8(1) (2) of the Central Bank of Nigeria (Establishment) Act 2007, President Buhari urged the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, to consider the expeditious confirmation of Mrs Ahmad, who would then resume work immediately,” the statement read in part.
