- Godwin Emefiele's reappointment as the CBN governor continues to generate reactions
- A member of the House of Reps, Muhammed Gudaji Kazaure, has condemned the reappointment of the CBN boss
- The All Progressives Congress lawmaker, said he is convinced that the president was misled into reappointing Emefiele
A member of the House of Representatives, Honourable Muhammed Gudaji Kazaure, has condemned President Muhammadu Buhari’s reappointment of Godwin Emefiele as governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
Addressing journalists at the National Assembly on Wednesday, May 15, Kazaure said reappointing Emefiele means, “instead of next level, we are going back level.”
The All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmaker, said he is convinced that the president was misled into reappointing Emefiele.
According to him, Emefiele should have been shown the way out of the CBN for his role in the alleged financial heist that occurred in the Goodluck Jonathan's government.
The lawmaker representing Kazaure, Gwiwa, Roni and Yankwashi federal constituency of Jigawa state even though he believes the president is a man of integrity and a key figure in the fight against corruption, he erred in reappointing Emiefiele.
He argued that things are getting worse by the day, adding that the Dollar to Naira exchange rate has not improved under the leadership of the present CBN governor.
His words: “The president himself is aware of the mess that happened during the PDP administration, the monies that went through CBN, spent by Emefiele.
“But the president never sacked him, but allowed him to finish his first tenure and now a man of integrity, who is fighting corruption and we have confidence in him, how can he reappoint him.
“If there is possibility to reverse the appointment and look for somebody with integrity to come and try.”
Meanwhile, the CBN governor has told Nigerians that the road to the country’s full economic recovery is still tough and rough.
Emefiele disclosed this when he appeared before the Senate committee on banking, insurance and other financial institutions for screening for reappointment as CBN governor for another five year term.
The CBN governor also decried the high level of disregard and disrespect of policies and laws of the country, while also expressing worry over the country’s rapid population growth rate warning that steps must be taken to put in place policies.
