President Jonathan picks Zenith Bank MD as new CBN Governor

 
President Jonathan has picked the current Managing Director of Zenith Bank Godwin Emefiele to replace Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as the new Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria. His name has been forwarded to the Senate for confirmation. 

Bayo Adelabu, the current Executive Director at First Bank as Deputy Governor of CBN, replacing Tunde Lemo.

This all seems so underhanded and well thought out! Suspended and they already have a replacement! Even the acting governor didn't get an opportunity to wield her power. This country actually sucks, the elites just think they can go about business anyhow they wish, irrespective of its consequence and believe the consequence could be dire!!!

Anonymous said...

See gobe! Just like that they don change him immediately....I was even thinking they will soon resolve the matter not knowin they will appoint a new governor without wasting time...Our President is doing he thinks is right anð good for the country...Good of him...I salute him

Seems as if Goodluck wants to send us back to the stone age by putting a less capable person who will not be able to challenge the government in position. The CBN is meant to be autonomous to be effective.

Sanusi was the best CBN governor that country ever had.The only CBN gov that won reputable international awards. The only governor that wasn't afraid of steping on toes of big wings, such as Cecelia Ibru exposing her and other banking armed robbers who traded, enriched and survived on money that were lodged by the poor.People lodged their money in banks without getting any interest. These sacked MDs by Sanusi were busy converting people's rightful interest to theirs. The government have decided to embarrass him because he exposed the 20 billion dollars that was not remitted by NNPC into the account of the federal government. Sanusi saved the banking industry and all your money, how else would you all have known that most of the banks he merged were operating on very little capital as such placing strains on your money and stealing away rightful interest u are entitled? Let me be clear on one thing, am not a muslim. I careless about religion, what's is important is that we get any one who can do the job,that person who works in the interest of the public.Islamic baking is the best system of banking, why is this? u get loans without interests on the loans you offered by banks.Islam is against interests,why do u all think the banks fought this system? work that out. Now the government has gotten a toy for a CBN governor, a man they can manipulate.All u back there are busy cheering and sending congratulatory messages.Sanusi highlighted that the federal government were not remitting necessary funds into federal account and yet they kept saying the country is broke.Pls all u back there reason well with all your senses before coming to a conclusion. This man would never last a year as CBN governor if he does not conform to the looting of the federal government. Yea yea, Sanuis sure had his flows, who doesn't? but what is interesting about him is that he understood the balance of going about things, and did what had to be done.

Wow, Sanusi should have known there is something called executive might. You can't bite the finger that fed you.

How won't he be removed....u challenge the power of the president of a country in which you are a mere Central Bank Governor, that disrespectful..

2. You remove policies and replace them with harsh ones not even cool for the masses but for you and you mind alone..

3. You say when receiving money from abroad, it shuld be in our local currency. When u damn well know the local currency doesn't have a stable value...that's preposterous!

4. You talk out of line, loose and belligerent like a puffed up house wife, that's "olojukokoro" ..

5. Now, u think u can win the good of your region with being truthful..its overrated they also want u out, cos u are light years ahead of your own self in rightful thoughts..

Oga jona...please play your cards well, and anybody wey wan challenge your authority and power again....#kick his/her ass out straight....this is "NIGERIA and not MYAREA"...

There are different sets of rules depending on who you are. Why didn't the presidency choose a new dg for sec when arumah had issues with the house. This man has not been suspended, but sacked. How can you choose a replacement when they are just allegations. How about the 20 billions dollars missing.?. Can you please provide quick answers Reuben abating just have you have speedily addressed the nation.

Jona's choice of this guy as a replacement just sums it all up. I once saw this guy doing the sign of the cross before entering Jim Ovia's office. And he was the DMD then! I've never known him to have his own opinion on ANY matter. This appointment is a blank cheque for Jona to loot this country to death. It's gonna be rough, Nigeria. Very rough!
