Emefiele, the incumbent CBN Governor, has been in office since the first week of June 2014 when his first tenure of office – a five-year term – commenced.
Given that the first term of five years ends in a few weeks, President Muhammadu Buhari had, via a letter to the Nigerian Senate, communicated the re-appointment of Emefiele, and requested a Senate confirmation.
