The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on Thursday in Abuja updated President Muhammadu Buhari on the activities of the bank.

The CBN governor, who briefed the president, had earlier on Thursday morning attended a meeting between the president and the visiting Director General of the Arab Bank for Economic Development, Dr Sid Ould Tah, at the State House, Abuja.

According to reports, Emefiele’s visit to the Presidential Villa was the first since he resumed work at the CBN after his leave on Jan. 12, 2022.

The CBN governor was out of the country for some weeks amidst fears he would be apprehended by operatives of the Department of State Service (DSS) over several allegations against him, including alleged terrorism financing.

However, the DSS dismissed online reports that its operatives on Monday  invaded the headquarters of the CBN and took over the office of the governor of the apex bank.

It was gathered that Emefiele, who did not speak to journalists after the closed door meeting with the president, briefed the president on the activities of the CBN since the introduction of the redesigned naira notes

is believed to have presidential backing on Naira redesign and withdrawal limit policy introduced by the apex bank in December, 2022.
