The newly confirmed Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Dr. Olayemi Cardoso has vowed that he and his team would not be hijacked by anyone, including politicians.
According to him, the effect of hijack and not doing right has been seen already and they do not intend for it to happen again.
The CBN Governor gave the assurance on Tuesday when he appeared alongside his deputies for screening by the Senate.
The deputy governors include Emem Nnana Usoro, Muhammad Sani Abdullahi Dattijo, Philip Ikeazor, and Dr. Bala M. Bello.
Answering a question from Senate President Godswill Akpabio during his screening on whether he would be influenced and hijacked by politicians when he assumed office, Cardoso promised that such won’t happen.
In his words, “It is important that we, who are considered for this position today, understand that this is a position of trust.
With that comes a huge responsibility to meet up with that trust. I know that a lot of time and effort has gone into choosing the people who are standing here for nomination today.
As far as I am concerned, under my leadership, we will not be hijacked by anybody. The idea is to ensure that we do what is right, when it is right, and how it is right. We’ve seen what the effect of not doing right has been, and we do not intend for that to be repeated.”
