Emefiele’s suspension, arrest long over due- Osinbajo’s spokesman
Laolu Akande, former spokesperson for the immediate past Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has described the alleged damage the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr Godwin Emefiele, perpetrated at the apex bank as colossal.
Akande also said the suspension and investigation of Emefiele was long over due and should be supported by any Nigerians with integrity.
The former spokesman of the past number two citizen of Nigeria stated this in a tweet on Saturday
He said that Emefiele’s “shenanigans” were detriment to Nigerians.
Laolu wrote, “It was about time d CBN Governor faced suspension & investigation. All people of goodwill & those who value integrity, irrespective of political leanings would be thankful for this development.
“Emefiele was given a long rope, but he failed to redeem himself. His shenanigans & the colossal damages he perpetrated at the CBN was to the utter detriment of the Nigerian people. This is not even about cashless policy, but apparent corruption especially in the dual exchange rate policy which never made sense. What a sigh of relief!”
Emefiele was suspended on Friday by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and was subsequently arrested by the Department of State Services, on Saturday.
