After it was seconded by Sen. Philip Aduda (PDP-FCT), the senate president referred the executive request to the Committee on Banking and Finance for further legislative action which was to report back to within a week.

The committee had, on Wednesday, screened Emefiele, giving him a clean bill of record.
