Written by on May 25, 2022

The Head of Corporate Communications of the Central Bank, Osita Nwanisiobi has informed newsmen that rumours of a purported sack of the Governor of the Central Bank, Godwin Emefiele, is not true.

Osita denied the rumours in a phone conversation stating that he is not aware of any sack of the CBN Governor and noted that the CBN Governor is in Davos on official assignment.

Several online media blogs have published reports of a purported sack of the Governor of the Central Bank of Africa’s largest economy.

The CBN Governor has been under pressure since he declared interest in running for president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The last time a CBN Governor was sacked was when Emefiele’s predecessor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi was suspended by President Goodluck Jonathan.
