The Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, on Monday resumed duty after a month’s absence from office.
The CBN on Monday issued a statement to clarify the situation as some online media had earlier reported that officials of the Department of Security Service had taken over his office.
Spokesperson of CBN, Osita Nwanisobi, in a statement said Emefiele
resumed duty after his
annual vacation abroad.
“Mr. Emefiele, who proceeded on leave in December 2022, resumed work today, Monday, January 16, 2023.
“The Governor resumed with renewed vigour to perform his duty ahead of the first Monetary
Policy Committee (MPC) meeting of the year scheduled for January 23 to 24, 2023.
“Mr. Emefiele remains committed to performing the task before him in line with his oath of
office and the policy direction of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“While thanking the public for keeping faith with the Bank, we urge Nigerians to continue to
support the policies of the Bank aimed at ensuring a stable financial system and the Nigerian economy in general,” the statement explained.
