For All Those Who Were Worn In The Last Three Days By MIKE IKEM UMEALO.

Aisha Ahmad.
We want young people and more women in positions of power and authority, and when we find them, what do we do?

According to Section 8 (1) of the CBN Act 2007 states only one qualification. It says the governor and deputy-governors “shall be persons of recognised financial experience”. No other qualification is stated. No minimum age is stipulated.

Now, in 2007, Suleiman Barau, was appointed deputy-governor (corporate services). His highest banking position before his appointment was general manager (treasury, financial institutions and private bank).

Then the honourable Mr Chukwuma Soludo, a professor of economics, was appointed to the highest banking position in Nigeria- CBN governor in 2004. He never worked in any bank. Before his appointment he was a university lecturer.

There is yet another serving deputy-governor named Mr Okwu Joseph Nnanna. Mr Nnanna joined the CBN in 1994 as an adviser to the governor before holding other positions, including director of research and statistics. He was appointed deputy-governor (financial system stability) on February 3, 2015.

Also, Mr Kingsley Moghalu, who was deputy-governor (financial system stability) from 2009 to 2014, holds a law degree from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. In addition to that, he holds a PhD in international relations from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

I really want to see Mrs Aisha Ahmad appointed as Nigeria’s first Female CBN governor. And if our Youths are kind to each other, we might have a president who is under 50 years by 2023.
Let us support our young people and let us support our women.

God bless. (MIU, Oct. 2017).
