2023: Falana Reveals Why Buhari Should Sack Emefiele As CBN Gov

Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, has disclosed that the continued stay in office of Godwin Emefiele as Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) could compromise the credibility of the 2023 general elections.

Consequently, the Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) urged President Muhammadu Buhari to sack him from office without delay.

Falana also advised the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to remove sensitive voting materials from the CBN for the sake of free, fair and credible 2023 general elections, NAN reports.

He spoke while addressing the South-West youths and women conference at Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State on Thursday.

“INEC is trying; it has deployed technology to get rid of rigging, but we can no longer keep sensitive election materials in the vault of the CBN.

“This is because the governor of the CBN is a card-carrying member of the All-Progressives Congress.

“It has never happened anywhere in the world; this is very dangerous. The CBN governor’s power is enormous under the CBN Act, so he can’t be a politician.

“We can’t look for an alternative place to keep our electoral materials; it is the CBN governor that must be removed and whether President Buhari likes it or not, Emefiele must go.

“Some Civil Society Organisations have filed a motion against him and we will pursue it to a logical conclusion,’’ Falana stressed.

Recall that Emefiele had indicated interest to contest as president in 2023 on the platform of the ruling APC, but rescinded the decision amid mounting pressure.
