The screening of Mr Godwin Emefiele for confirmation as the new governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) by the Senate, which was scheduled to take place on Thursday, has been postponed to next week Tuesday.
Emefiele was nominated by President Goodluck Jonathan to replace suspended Sanusi Lamido Sanusi whose unrenewed tenure expires in June.
The screening was earlier listed in last Tuesday’s Senate Notice Paper for yesterday (Thursday.)
But a fresh notice to that effect was distributed to senators on Wednesday announcing that the screening, which may hold in open plenary, will now take place on Tuesday next week.
As earlier announced, the Senate leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba (SAN), was scheduled to formally move the motion for the screening and confirmation of the nominee.
His motion would also pave way for the screening and confirmation of Adelabu Adebayo Adekola as deputy governor of the apex bank.
