The CBN gave the explanation after it was accused of conducting a secret recruitment process and hiring children of prominent citizens.

The clarification was made by the apex bank’s acting Director of Corporate Communications, Isaac Okorafor to Premium Times.

“In the last two years, we have had cause to recruit specialists, and what the law says is that if we are going for that kind of recruitment we should apply for waiver, so that we can do targeted recruitment,” Okoroafor said.

“The other issue is that there are states that are not well represented (in the CBN), and in this case we focus on those states to recruits people of certain classes that we used to cover the shortfall in those states,” he added.

Earlier reports had it that the CBN has hired 909 staff in two years without advertising vacancies.
