In a statement yesterday in Abuja by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President said: “It gives me great pleasure to rejoice with you on the occasion of your Diamond Jubilee. Kindly accept the felicitations of myself, family and Nigerians at this auspicious milestone.
“As governor of Nigeria’s apex bank, you have rendered selfless service to your country at a most challenging period of our economic development, and I salute your commitment, passion and doggedness.
“As you continue to build on these achievements, it is my hope that your efforts translate to more positive results on the nation’s economy for improved living standards we envisage for our people.”
Also, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi, the Speaker said Emefiele is one Nigerian who has been serving his country diligently and committedly as the governor of the apex bank.
He said Emefiele’s track records are there for all to see, adding that Nigeria and Nigerians are proud of him for his services.
