  • Desperate politicians with evil plots are behind the call for Godwin Emefiele's arrest and detention by the DSS
  • This was the allegation made by the CAN chairman in Kaduna, Joseph Hayab, on Tuesday, December 20
  • Hayab claimed that politicians who are planning to buy votes from the electorate are the same persons opposing the CBN's recent monetary policy

Kaduna - The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has expressed worry over the evil scheme to arrest and detain the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele.

Joseph Hayab, the chairman of CAN in Kaduna, is baffled by the fact that the CBN's new monetary policy is being used to pick a fight with Emefiele.

Hayab added that almost every Nigerian is aware that a lot of politicians have stockpiles of cash for monetary inducement during the coming polls.

Reminding the politicians whom he believes have resolved to manipulate the polls to be sure that the international community is watching them, Hayab stated that the silence of well-meaning Nigerians should not be taken for granted:

He said:

“That shows that this is a case of the voice of Jacob and the hand of Esau. Surely, every right-thinking Nigerian knows that politicians had stockpiled huge sums of cash in order to manipulate the 2023 elections.
“Indeed, we saw the image on a blackboard behind the son of a prominent politician where the words ‘monetary inducement’ was boldly written. Therefore, we are of the considered view that the attempt to intimidate the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria into abandoning the program of redesigning the naira and the new ATM limits is at the behest of politicians whose election strategy is based on money inducement.
