The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, has dismissed claims in some quarters that President Muhammadu Buhari had asked him to proceed on terminal leave.

Buhari had allegedly asked the apex bank boss to proceed on terminal leave.

The leave according to some online media was to last for three months which would ultimately lead to his exit from the apex bank.

Responding to enquiries by newsmen on Tuesday, Emefiele said there is no truth is such claims that he had proceeded on terminal leave.

He disclosed that his tenure expires in June and that he would continue to perform his role in the interest of the economy.

He said, “At least you can see me and you have seen my work. My tenure expires in June and at least let’s continue.

“The intervention programmes of the Central Bank of Nigeria has been on since 1978 and it has moved from governor to another governor and I am very optimistic that even if another governor comes, no right-thinking person will abandon an initiative that is laudable and meant to create jobs for the good of our country.”
