Taliban Appoints Mullah Hedayatullah Badri As Governor of Afghan Central Bank

Wednesday, 03/22/2023

The Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid announced on Wednesday that Mullah Hedayatullah Badri has been appointed as the governor of the Central Bank of Afghanistan.

Most recently, Badi had served as the finance minister of the Taliban.

After the Taliban regained control of Afghanistan in mid-August 2021, Badri had been appointed as the Acting Minister of Finance of the Taliban.

Earlier, there were rumours about Badri's resignation from the Ministry of Finance. He is said to have resigned due to a dispute over revenue with Taliban leader Mullah Hibatullah Akhundzada.

Before Badri, Abdul Qahir, was in-charge of the Taliban-controlled Central Bank of Afghanistan.
