Emifele Has Already Handed CBN Control To Buhari Long Time Ago – Ezekwesili
Oby Ezekwesili, the former Minister of Education, said on Friday that Godwin Emefiele, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, gave over control of the top bank to President Muhammadu Buhari seven years ago.
Since the APC administration seized office in 2015, the co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls campaign has also claimed that the top bank’s monetary policies have been political.
This remark was made in response to Emefiele’s plan to run for president in 2023 under the governing party’s banner.
Emefiele chose the All Progressives Congress N100 million presidential nomination and statement of interest form on Friday, according to Naija02.
She further asserted that the CBN had given the Villa its freedom.
“If you did not know all along that Nigeria’s serial wrong and ill-advised Monetary Policies of the last 7 years were political because the @cenbank long-handed its independence to the Villa @NGRPresident @MBuhari, at least now you know. They’ve outed themselves. Finally.”
“The Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria @cenbank must now immediately tender his resignation to stop further destroying whatever little remains of the country’s monetary policy reputation. Mr Emefele should leave immediately- tonight- to pursue his ill-fated political career.”
