Diamond Jubilee: Babajide Sanwo-Olu Serenades Godwin Emefiele




“Forget the block. When you’re sixty you’ve been around the entire neighborhood a few times.”

The quote by Dane Peddigrew details the road to Godwin Emefiele’s new age.

Indeed, the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has been around, as turning 60 years old is no means feat.

Emefiele turned 60 years old on Wednesday, July 4, attracting commendation from friends and associates including the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Sanwo-Olu described Emefiele as an invaluable asset to the country, adding that his input to the nation’s economy and the financial sector has shown his visionary leadership.



“Attaining the age of 60 years in grace is worth celebrating, considering Emefiele’s remarkable track records in the financial world, which have earned him an enviable place as Governor of Nigeria’s apex bank. Over the years, Emefiele has proved his worth as a good manager of human and capital resources in both the public and public sectors.

“As CBN Governor, Emefiele has been a worthy partner in our administration’s quest to building a Greater Lagos for millions of Lagosians, by creatively working with us in some areas of interventions aimed at building institutions for sustainable economic growth and development of Lagos State.

“Mr. Emefiele’s intellectual input to the nation’s economy in this global economic depressing period has helped in no small measure to stabilise the business environment, while restoring confidence in the ecosystem.

“As Mr. Godwin Emefiele celebrates his Diamond Jubilee, I wish him good health and more fruitful years. I pray that God will continue to preserve and grant him good health to enable him to render more service to humanity and our dear nation,” Sanwo-Olu said while showering encomium on the successful economist.
