A nominee for membership of the Central Bank of Nigeria Board of Directors, Urum Kalu Eke has declined the offer stating that he is currently engaged in the World Bank.

President Bola Tinubu had on February 13, forwarded the names of Urum and four others for confirmation as members of the board for the CBN.

During the confirmation of the nominees today, February 29, former Governor of Abia State, Senator Orji Kalu, told the Senate that the person who is his constituent had called him on the phone to reject the offer, noting that it would conflict with his present job as a consultant with the World Bank.

“The nominee told me this role would conflict with his job as a consultant to the World Bank, Federal Government agencies and other private companies.” he said


Meanwhile, the Senate has confirmed the appointment of four other members of the Board of Directors of the CBN forwarded to it by the President. Those confirmed by the Senate on Thursday as Directors are Robert Agbede; Ado Yakubu Wanka; Professor Murtala Sabo Sagagi and Mrs. Muslimat Olanike Aliyu.

Read before commenting your myopic tribalistic madness. He is already working for the world bank, taking the job will bring a conflict of interest.
