Race For CBN Governor Heats Up

WITH the five-year tenure of the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, due to end in June, the jostle for his seat is already at a crescendo.

Although no one seems to know the mind of President Muhammadu Buhari on the matter, there appears a consensus of opinion that the President is happy with Emefiele because CBN’s policies under him have stabilised the nation’s economy to a large extent.

As it would be expected, lobbyists are all over the place bandying different names as Emefiele’s potential successor.

The names being touted include those of a female banker and a governorship candidate in the just concluded elections.

But the most prominent of the touted names is that of a serving governor who is believed to have won Buhari’s heart with his performance. However, whether the governor in question would prefer being CBN governor to his current portfolio remains a matter of conjecture.
