Buhari writes Senate, seeks confirmation of Aisha Ahmad as CBN Deputy Governor

President Muhammadu Buhari is seeking the Senate's confirmation of Mrs. Aisha Ahmad's appointment as a Deputy Governor in the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

In a letter read by the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, the president said the confirmation was necessary as Mrs. Ahmad would replace one of the deputy governors who retired early this year.

"In accordance with the provisions of Section 8 (1) (2) of the Central Bank of Nigeria (Establishment) Act 2007, President Buhari urged the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, to consider the expeditious confirmation of Mrs Ahmad, who would then resume work immediately", the statement read in part.

"Please find attached, copies of her curriculum vitae". Dr. Aliyu Rafindadi Sanusi; Dr. Robert Chikwendu Asogwa and Dr. Asheikh A. Maidugu.

The president also sought confirmation of four nominees as members of the Monetary Policy Committee of the CBN to replace four members whose tenure will expire at the end of the year.

Ahmad's nomination as deputy governor of the apex bank had been announced by the presidency on Thursday, October 5.
