The Senate has shifted the screening of Mr Godwin Emefiele for confirmation as the new governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) from the scheduled date of today to Tuesday next week.
Emefiele was nominated by President Goodluck Jonathan to replace suspended Sanusi Lamido Sanusi whose tenure expires in June.
The screening was earlier listed in last Tuesday's Senate Notice Paper for today (Thursday.)
But a fresh notice to that effect circulated to senators on Wednesday announced that the screening, which may hold in open plenary, will now take place on Tuesday next week.
As earlier announced, the Senate leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba, was scheduled to formally move the motion for the screening and confirmation of the nominee.
The Ndoma-Egba motion would also pave way for the screening and confirmation of Adelabu Adebayo Adekola as deputy governor of the CBN.
