A crowd of protesters under a pro-democracy group, Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders in Nigeria (CACLN) stormed the Presidential Villa to demand the immediate sack of the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, over allegations of “fraud, diversion of government funds, and perpetuating unwholesome practices in the Forex management.
The Convener, Dauda Yakubu, who spoke with journalists said that Emefiele has not only “desecrated the revered Apex Bank in Nigeria but also made the country a laughing stock in the comity of nations.”
“I welcome you all to this gathering that was convoked with the best of intentions for our dear country. As concerned stakeholders in the Nigerian Project, we have witnessed one of the worst leaders in the annals of the country,” he explained.
“The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, has not only desecrated the revered Apex Bank in Nigeria but also made the country a laughing stock in the comity of nations. His penchant for voodoo economics is also legendary.
“The policy summersaults and inconsistencies in fiscal policies have indeed hurt the country’s economy in unimaginable ways. This is indeed sad, and we wish to put on record that Godwin Emefiele is not fit to continue in office as Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
“It remains a mystery how the Governor of the sensitive Central Bank of a country would engage in partisan politics by vying for the position of President expending billions of naira from the vaults of the Central Bank in his political ambition
