The Senate has confirmed Dr. Olayemi Cardoso’s nomination as Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN.

Cardoso was chosen with four other candidates for the role of CBN Deputy Governor, which would oversee the apex bank’s operations for the next five years.

Mrs. Emem Nnana Usoro, Mr. Muhammad Sani Abdullahi Dattijo, Mr. Philip Ikeazor, and Dr. Bala M. Bello are the deputy governors.
