The duo were first appointed as CBN deputy governors in charge of the Financial System Stability and Corporate Services Directorate respectively in March 2018.

In a letter addressed to the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, the president asked the Senate to confirm their nominations in the “usual expeditious manner.”

The re-appointment means Ahmad will remain in charge of Financial System Stability.

Before her appointment at the CBN, Aishah was Executive Director, Retail Banking at Diamond Bank PLC, with over 22 years of experience as a corporate executive and finance expert.
