But the Governor responding to the calls for him to step down at a meeting to announce the new Monetary Policy rate said,

“My son in law is my son in law; it has nothing to do with me being Governor of the Central Bank. I have made a statement on that and that should be enough for you. My term will end this year and I will let you know when am going so thank you.”
