The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Godwin Emefiele, has not been sacked.
A staff at the CBN information office, who asked not to be named, said: “Emefiele is still very much in charge at the Central Bank Headquarters. There is no threat of a sack.”
Emefiele was rumoured to have been sacked earlier on Wednesday by President Muhammadu Buhari over his purported presidential ambition.
He called on the public to disregard the fake news of his sack.
