Oshiomhole, CSOs Condemn Calls For Emefiele’s Sack

Edo State Governor, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole and a coalition of civil society groups in the country yesterday condemned those calling for the sack of the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr. Godwin Emefiele, describing them as faceless manipulators of the Nigerian economy who are bent on wasting their time.

They stated that President Muhammadu Buhari would not be fooled by them into sacking the CBN governor.

Oshiomhole said the hiring and firing of the CBN governor is not a political decision because institutions such as the central bank are central to economic growth and development of any serious nation.

The governor argued that those angling for the sack of Emefiele were merely invisible hands who have continued to thwart the nation’s economic resources for their selfish interest.

The governor made the statement yesterday in Abuja during his visit to the National Universities Commission (NUC) to present a letter of recognition of the Edo University in Iyamho.
