U.S. Senate Confirms Adeyemo As Deputy Secretary Of The Treasury by Nobody: 12:38am On Mar 26, 2021
The U.S. Senate confirmed the nomination of Wally Adeyemo as Deputy Secretary of the Treasury on Thursday, making him the first Black American to hold the powerful job.

Adeyemo, 39, has struck a hardline tone on China, vowing to fight what he called Beijing's "unfair economic practices" and hold China accountable to international rules.

Adeyemo will play a key role in shaping U.S. economic policy on issues ranging from financial regulation to relief for everyday Americans and U.S. sanctions on foreign governments.

A former senior adviser at asset manager BlackRock Inc and the child of Nigerian immigrants, Adeyemo served as a top national security and economic adviser to Democratic former President Barack Obama and held senior jobs at the Treasury.

The Senate confirmed Adeyemo on a voice vote, a procedure used when there is little to no opposition.

Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen hails Wally's confirmation

My warmest congratulations to Wally Adeyemo, our new Deputy Secretary of the Treasury.

Wally is everything @USTreasury needs right now: he’s spent his career working at the intersection of nat’l security & economic interests. He’s also a tireless advocate for the working class.

He’s become a master of shuttle economic diplomacy, helping keep our economy strong at home & competitive abroad. He also helped build the @CFPB from its foundation after the Great Recession.

His values & managerial experience will be a huge asset to Treasury as we implement ARP

I’m confident that Wally will handle his mission as Deputy Secretary like he’s handled everything else during his career: with integrity and excellence.

Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen

Adeyemo was one of three Nigerian-Americans (alongside Funmi Olorunnipa Badejo and Osaremen Okolo), tapped by then President-elect Joe Biden to serve in his Government.

He was senior international economic adviser in the Barack Obama administration.

I still wonder the possibility in Nigeria of having our Minister of State of Science and Technology originally from Cameroon AND Chairman Security and Exchange Commission originally form Ghana.

Our Multiethnic nature prevents using the best for the job and it also promote nepotism.

Is any solution to this feasible?

Our intelligent Father's, Mother's, Uncle's and sons are being recognized overseas while our president is surrounded with a team of dullards and suppressed intellects. A government run by nepotism and not meritocracy. Little wonder we are where we are.

No. He is completely inexperienced about our challenges so he should stay there and deal with the problems his loyalty, brain and training can cope with because he has no loyalty to us, no sound brain knowledge of our problems, and we are not running a $27 Trillion debt economy fuelled by buying junk bonds of even dead companies with tax payers money, or cheating other nations by minting more currency while telling other nations not to do same. So he will fail just like the way Dr Mrs Okonjo-Iweala failed, neocolonialism failed and China blossomed over the US and their western partners.

We made same mistake then by 'importing' Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala from the West to become the Finance Minister and till date, her most notable achievement in her national public service is helping the West recieve back with interest their dodgy opaque loans they purportedly loaned to us but which still found their ways back into their corrupt banks. Dr Okonjo-Iweala knew this as a VP then in WB but her loyalty is first to the West.

Yet by the time Dr Okonjo-Iweala left office, almost all our foreign reserve stolen , almost all the states could not pay salaries for months with civil servants dying despite FG borrowing billions to pay ghost workers and the country driven into and left there by Dr Okonjo-Iweala in the worst economic recession in our modern history yet a little known and globally less or un- decorated ex-commissioner was appointed from Ogun state and she worked hard, excellently and patriotically to reverse everything; cleaned all the disastrous economic mess Dr Okonjo-Iweala left behind as Minister of finance; her name is Mrs Kemi Adeosun. No world bank ex-this or that, no MITT certificate or training and no loyalty to the West..

My point is that the solution to our problems lie within. You don't need an American-Nigerian to teach you to be patriotic and loyal to Nigeria your nation or that if you grow in righteousness, your fervent prayer for peace and progress of your country and blessing your country every morning like some of us do ,availeth much. If you are not blessing Nigeria or adding value to Nigeria, you are not a blessing to Nigeria.visit www.freestuffsng.com for latest freestuffs in Nigeria. God bless Nigeria.

A big hearty congratulations to Wally. Well deserved, well experienced for the job.

Our Presidents here only appoint who will help them deliver a particular state/region during reelection so as to retain office and not who is perfect for the job. Even in second term, they appoint those that will help party retain office. Very shameful, yet nobody calls them out on this.

Some day, our leaders will mature to put the interests of the country/citizens first in their appointments, not re elections.
