Former lawmaker Senator Shehu Sani has commended President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for suspending the Central Bank of Nigeria governor, Godwin Emefiele.
Recall that Legit.ng earlier reported that Emefiele was suspended late at night on Friday, June 9, following a statement released by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) office.
The statement reads partly:
“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has suspended the Central Bank Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele, CFR, from office with immediate effect.

“This is sequel to the ongoing investigation of his office and the planned reforms in the financial sector of the economy."
In reaction to this development, Senator Sani has urged President Tinubu to properly clean up the apex bank rather than just evicting Emefiele.
"The eviction of Emefiele is commendable. The appointment of Shonubi as acting Governor is commendable.
"But the Housecleaning of the CBN can only be done by engaging a team of auditors from OUTSIDE of the CBN." Only they can professionally and thoroughly probe the apex Bank and tell the country how the Bank was run under Buhari’s Emefiele.
He accused the immediate past administration of ex-President Muhammadu Buhari of turning the apex bank into their ATM.
Senator Sani said:
"The CBN was operated as an ATM of the Cabal, a Canteen and Cash Cow of the parasitic elites of the past administration."
