The Peoples Democratic Political party (PDP) on Thur demanded the instant resignation and prosecution of the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, going by allegations by the All Progressives Congress (APC) that he superintended over massive looting of funds in the apex bank.
The political party made the telephone in a statement by Kola Ologbondiyan, its National Publicity Secretarial assistant, on Thur.
It called on the Economical and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to right away invite Emefiele for questioning over allegations by the National Secretarial assistant of the illegal APC National Caretaker Commission, Senator John Akpan Udoedehe, that the CBN governor supervised the pillaging of the land’s vaults under his take in.
He said Nigerians were shocked when Udoedehe on Channels TV programme “Politics Nowadays” of quarta-feira, September 15, 2021, revealed that the CBN governor supervised the stealing of money in the apex bank, a evolution for which he must be investigated by the EFCC and whether found wanting, prosecuted.
He added that PDP has waited a week for Udoedehe to recant on his statement or for Emefiele to repudiate the APC National Secretarial assistant.
“Our political party insists that beyond Akpan Udoedehe’s allegation, the tenure of Emefiele as CBN governor under the APC administration has witnessed colossal failures of monetary and financial policies, requiring him to vacate the business office and paw himself over for investigation.
“It is instructive to notation that when Emefiele took business office as CBN Governor in 2014 the naira exchanged for N164 to a dollar. Nowadays, in the hands of Emefiele and the APC, the naira has tumbled to near N600 to a dollar, putting the land’s economic system on its knees.
“Painfully, under the leadership of Emefiele, the CBN has failed in its core mandate of managing the economic system and took a dive into propaganda, with claims that do not reverberate the harsh economical reality on the ground,” the statement read.
The PDP thus urged the EFCC not to “allow this revelation to be swept under the carpet as it borders on serious economical sabotage which sanctions are clearly spelt out under our laws.”
