The Senate on Thursday confirmed the nomination of Dr. Kingsley Obiora as the Deputy Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

 

The confirmation followed the consideration of the report of Senator Uba Sani-led Senate Committee on Financial Institutions by the Senate.

 

The committee, while commending the quality of the nominee and his patriotic zeal, said the nomination underscored the importance of merit in considering Nigerians for appointments.

 

In a similar development, the Upper Chamber also confirmed the nomination of Zirullah Hassan for appointment as Chairman, National Hajji Commission of Nigeria and 17 others as members.

 

This was sequel to the consideration of the report of the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, chaired by Senator Emmanuel Bwacha.
