Earlier today President Muhammadu Buhari nominated Godwin Emefiele for a second term as governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
It will be recalled that Naija News reported that the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki has also during plenary, read the nomination letter.

Meanwhile, the nomination has been greeted by Nigerians with mixed feeling, as some Nigerians praised the nomination, others feared the power of dominance.
I am a critic of President @MBuhari because I believe he is inept, and tribalistic. However, when he does well, I must commend him. In nominating Godwin Emefiele for a 2nd term, Buhari showed he is listening and is slowly shedding his clannish nature. For that, I commend him.

"Godwin Emefiele" I am impressed PMB could disappoint it critics by extending the CBNs Governors tenure. I only hope his extension is not politically motivated just to make a Point. That is needless at the moment! pic.twitter.com/3wKf2lLPXs

Godwin Emefiele has just been reappointed as CBN governor for another term.. Wailers are suddenly quiet, if the CBN governor had been from the North or South West, social media, PDP, our people from other side won't allow Nigeria to rest.

@PaulWallace123, I think you owe President Buhari an apology for some of your previous analysis on this issue. I also hope you will, in the future, show more restraint on issues like these
