Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, has dismissed allegations that he was asked to proceed on terminal leave.
There had been speculation that President Muhammadu Buhari had asked the CBN Governor to proceed on terminal leave.
According to reports, the leave was to last three months, which would eventually lead to its exit from the bank.
But responding to enquiries from journalists at a meeting he had with stakeholders in the textile industry in Abuja, Emefiele said there was no truth in these claims that he had proceeded on terminal leave.
Mr Emefiele also added that his tenure will expire in June and he will continue to play his role in the interest of the economy.
Godwin Emefiele has been Governor of the CBN since June 3, 2014. His appointment is for a period of five years and is renewable if the President so wishes.
He said, “At least you can see me and you have seen my work. My tenure expires in June and at least let’s continue.
