The Senate has confirmed the appointment of Yemi Cardoso as the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor and four others as deputy governors of the apex bank.  They were confirmed today following a screening by the upper legislative body. The deputy governors who were confirmed are Emem Nnana Usoro, Muhammad Sani Abdullahi Dattijo, Philip Ikeazor, and Bala Bello. Before their confirmation, the nominees had answered questions on matters related to economic and other policies, where Cardoso promised to embrace compliance, assuring that under his leadership, the apex bank would remain apolitical.
