New governor starts at scandal-hit Nigerian central bank
Yahoo News - over 2 years
Nigeria's new central bank governor began work on Tuesday, starting a fresh chapter in Africa's biggest economy after his predecessor's tenure ended in scandal and claims of political connivance. Godwin Emefiele took over from Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, who was removed in February, four months from the end of his term of office, on government charges of financial recklessness and impropriety. The nomination of former Zenith Bank chief Emefiele's came as a surprise to many market watchers and his first day at the helm was low key, although he is expected to speak later this week. From the outset, he is seen as likely to build on Sanusi's policies, which are credited with bringing relative stability to the banking industry and putting it on a sound footing.
