The Senate, on Tuesday, confirmed the nomination of Olayemi Cardoso as the substantive Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.

President Bola Tinubu on September 15 approved the nomination of Cardoso as the new Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria for a term of five years at the first instance, pending his confirmation by the Senate.
