2023: Sack Emefiele Now, Civil Society Group Urges Buhari, Says He’s Funding Presidential Aspiration With CBN’s Money
A Civil Society Organisation, Conscience Nigeria has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, for sponsoring his Presidential ambition with CBN funds.
The groups stated that it is an open fact that naira was ₦170 against the dollar before Emefiele’s emergence as the Governor of CBN.
Presently, according to the group, “due to his weak policies, it is now ₦550 against a dollar and still counting.
His ineffectiveness has crashed the Naira to the worst situation ever in our history”.
At a press conference in Abuja on Sunday, 3 April 2022, the group’s Secretary-General, Muhammad Hussein, called for the immediate removal of the CBN Governor so that he can focus on his Presidential ambition noting that his removal will be a major step towards the fight against corruption.
“We will follow up all your corrupt activities that have led our economy to this regrettable height and you will pay for every damage you’ve done to our economy,” the group said.
It added that the clamour for a corrupt free Nigeria is on course and Nigerians are not backing out. We shall follow it to a logical conclusion.
The group further urged President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the CBN Governor to pave way for better hands that will revive the nation’s economy immediately.
