Yemi Cardoso, substantive governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), says the leadership of the organisation will work to regain the trust and integrity of the apex bank.
Cardoso made this known in a post on his X platform on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, the senate confirmed Cardoso as the substantive CBN governor.
The upper chamber also confirmed Emem Nnana Usoro, Muhammad Sani Abdullahi Dattijo, Philip Ikeazor and Bala Bello, as deputy governors of the apex bank.
Speaking on the appointment, the substantive CBN governor thanked President Bola Tinubu for the nomination as well as Godswill Akpabio, senate president, and all members of the red chamber, for considering him.
“Yesterday, I had the honour of standing before the Senate and being confirmed as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria,” he said.
“I would like to thank His Excellency President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the nomination and the Honourable President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio and all the Distinguished Members of the Senate for their time and consideration. Lastly, I would like to thank my family and friends for their unwavering support.
“I am humbled to have been appointed as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria. The challenges we face are enormous.”
However, Cardoso expressed confidence that with the support of the newly appointed deputy governors and the support of all Nigerians and relevant stakeholders, “we will regain the trust and integrity of the Central Bank of Nigeria and succeed”.
