Reports suggesting that President Muhammadu Buhari has sacked the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele from his job is not true.
The report which was carried by several online media blogs was debunked by the head of corporate communications of the Central Bank, Osita Nwanisiobi.
According to him, the rumours of a purported sack of the Governor of the Central Bank, Godwin Emefiele, is not true.
Speaking in a phone conversation with Nairametrics, Osita denied the rumours stating that “he is not aware of any sack of the CBN Governor”.
The media outlet also understands that the CBN Governor is in Davos on official assignment.
Several sources close to the presidency and the CBN Governor also claim no knowledge of a purported sack.
The CBN Governor has been under pressure since he declared interest in running for president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria
