Former Central Bank of Nigeria Deputy Governor, Mr Tunde Lemo has indicated interested in contesting for the 2015 Governorship election in Ogun state, according to CityPeople .
Mr Tunde Lemo became the CBN Deputy Governor in 2003. He retired from the post earlier this year. Prior to his appointment, he was Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Wema Bank Nigeria Plc between 2000 and 2003.
Born in 1959, Lemo attended Lisabi Grammar School, Ogun State and the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, where he emerged as the overall best graduating student in the Faculty of Social Sciences with a Bachelor of Science degree in Accountancy (First Class Division) in 1984.
Lemo also attended Advanced Management Programme (AMP) at the Wharton College, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA in 2002 as well as executive training programmes in world class institutions including Harvard University, INSEAD, Fontainbleau, France, Brandies University, Boston.
Though he is yet to formally declare his intentions, Lemo is believed to be close to the former Governor of the state, Otunba Gbenga Daniel who is expected to defect to the People’s Democratic Party today.
The Ex CBN Deputy Governor’s plans remain largely unclear as he is still consulting, though he is believed to be willing to run on the platform of any of the ‘known’ political parties in the state.
