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 to the hallowed chamber, read by the Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, who presided over Thursday’s plenary, Buhari said, if confirmed, Ahmad would replace a deputy governor who retired early this year.
The request for the confirmation of Ahmad was in accordance with the provisions of Section 8 of the Central Bank of Nigeria (Establishment) Act 2007.
“I have the pleasure to present Mrs Aisha Ahmad for confirmation as Deputy Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, replacing one of the bank’s deputy governors, who retired earlier this year,” Buhari wrote in the letter.
