Tinubu Seeks Replacement Of Eke As S’East Nominee.

President Bola Tinubu has written to the Senate, seeking the screening and subsequent confirmation of Ruby Onwudiwe as member of the board of directors of the Central Bank of Nigeria.

President of the Senate, Senator Godswill Akpabio, who read the letter on Wednesday, said that the nominee is a replacement for the South East nominee from Abia State, Orum Kalu Eke, who declined the nomination due to his engagement at the World Bank and other financial institutions.

The rejection of appointment of membership of the CBN Board of Directors by Urum Kalu Eke came to the fore as the Senate confirmed the appointment of four other members of the Board of Directors of the CBN, which was forwarded to it by President Bola Tinubu.

Those confirmed by the Senate as directors were Robert Agbede, Ado Yakubu Wanka, Professor Murtala Sabo Sagagi, and Mrs. Muslimat Olanike Aliyu.

The confirmation was a sequel to the consideration of a report of the screening of the nominee presented by the Chairman, Senate Committee on Banking, Insurance, & Other Financial Institutions, Senator Adetokunbo Abiru, APC, Lagos East.

He thereafter urged the Senate to confirm the appointments of the four nominees who attended the screening session and decline those of Kalu Eke, who didn’t attend the screening exercise.
