The head of corporate communications of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Osita Nwanisiobi has said that rumours of a purported sack of the Governor of the Central Bank, Godwin Emefiele, is false.
Osita denied the rumor stating that “he is not aware of any sack of the CBN Governor”.
Several online media blogs have published reports of a purported sack of the Governor of the Central Bank of Africa’s largest economy with some mentioning that “it was unconfirmed” even though they went ahead to publish.
Other sources close to the CBN Governor also debunked the rumor’s.
In a shock to the markets the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on Tuesday raised its benchmark Monetary Policy Rate (MPR), to 13 per cent.
