President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the Senate to confirm Folashodun Sonubi as Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
He is to replace Ibadan-born Adebayo Adelabu, who resigned few weeks ago to pursue his governorship ambition in Oyo State.
This is contained in Buhari’s letter read by the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki on Wednesday in Abuja.
“In accordance with the provisions of Section 81 sub-section 2 of the CBN Establishment Act 2017, I have the pleasure to present Folashodun Adebisi Sonubi for confirmation as Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
“Find as attached a copy of his curriculum vitae while looking forward for your usual expeditious approval,” Buhari said.
