Laolu Akande, spokesperson for the immediate past Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, on Saturday, alleged that the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr Godwin Emefiele, perpetrated “colossal damage” at the apex bank.
Akande also described Emefiele’s suspension and investigation as long over due action that should be supported by all Nigerians with integrity.
The former VP’s spokesperson stated this via his twitter handle on Saturday, saying Emefiele’s “shenanigans” were detrimental to Nigerians.
Akande tweeted, “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!”
On Friday, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu suspended Emefiele, who was subsequently arrested by the Department of State Services.
