Ibadan-born deputy governor (operations) of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Oloye Adebayo Adelabu has denied rumour that he has resigned his appointment at the apex bank.
Speaking with insideoyo.com, Adelabu said the rumour is untrue, adding that he has just been appointed a board member of the Federal Inland Revenue Board, FIRS, representing CBN.
Adelabu is currently at a retreat organised by FIRS.
For months, rumours have been rife that Adelabu has resigned owing to his reported bid govern Oyo State from 2019.
Adelabu, who is the grandson of late populist politician- Alhaji Adegoke Adelabu Penkelemesi, is currently the chairman of Nigeria InterBank Settlement Systems Plc, NIBBS.
The 48-year old former First Bank Executive Director is also a board member of Assets Management Corporation of Nigeria, AMCOM and the Nigeria Security Printing and Minting Company, NSPMC.
This was after Adelabu, who currently chairs Oyo State Security Trust Fund and School Governing Board of Lagelu Grammar School, had served as the chairman of Financial institutions Training Centre, FITC.
Oloye, as the Agbaakin Parakoyi of Ibadan land is fondly called, had been deputy governor in charge of financial system stability and corporate service respectively, at various times in his less than 5 years at CBN.
This appointments, Adelabu said, have been based on merit and performance as well as track record in both the private and public sector.
Political observers are in doubt as to whether Adelabu will forgo all these top notch appointments for his governorship ambition.
