Nigeria's Central Bank Governor Nominated for Second Term

President Muhammadu Buhari has nominated Godwin Emefiele for a second term as governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria. Emefiele was first appointed in 2014 by former president Goodluck Jonathan and was retained when Buhari came to office in 2015. This is the first time since 1999, when Nigeria returned to democracy, that someone has been nominated to serve two terms as central bank governor.
