Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Mr Godwin Emefiele on Tuesday debunked the rumour that he has been relieved of the position.

Responding to a question on his status during a meeting with textile stakeholders in Abuja, Emefiele said “as you can see, I am here doing my work. My tenure expires in June.

“And we will continue with our work until then.

“CBN has been intervening in the economy since 1978 and whoever comes after me will continue from where we stopped.

“No right-thinking person will discontinue an intervention that is meant to create jobs and improve the economy,” he declared.
