President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the nomination of Folashodun Adebisi Shonubi as the Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
It is, however, subject to Senate confirmation.
This was contained in a statement signed by the president’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, on Friday.
Shonubi is currently the Managing Director of the Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement System Plc (NIBSS).
NIBSS is the financial payments, facilitation and settlement platform, which has been instrumental to the growth in electronic payments in the Nigerian financial industry.
Before assuming the headship of NIBBS in 2012, Shonubi had garnered decades of executive-level experience in financial service operations, notably as Executive Director at Union Bank of Nigeria Plc, Renaissance Securities Nigeria Ltd and Ecobank Nigeria Plc.
