He said: “The CBN governorship should be brought back to the South-West, because the position was occupied by a Yoruba man since 19 years ago, after Mr Ola Vincent, and since then, it is has been South-East, North or South-South region.

“The group has even studied those from the South-West that are eyeing for this position and we can see one Prof. Segun Ajibola (Professor of Economics), who has worked in the banking industry in Nigeria with various accolades.

“He is an economist, a lawyer and a banker, he was a principal manager in 2004 when your excellency was the governor, and till now, he is still working in the bank industry and as associate professor in many universities in our country.”

Meanwhile, Bilesanmi, also Director-General, the Babatunde Fashola Fans Club of Nigeria, urged old politicians who had been in the corridor of power for years to give room for younger one to rise in the new administration.
