President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed a deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr Edward Adamu, as Chairman of the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON).

The appointment was contained in a letter forwarded to the Senate and read by the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, during Tuesday’s plenary.

In the letter dated December 9, President Buhari urged members of the Red Chamber of the National Assembly to confirm Adamu’s appointment.

He was appointed as the CBN Director of Strategy Management Department in 2012, after a rigorous selection process.

Four years later, he was deployed to the Human Resources Department of the bank as a director, a position he held until his retirement on February 14, 2018.
