AREWA YOUTH CALL FOR SACK OF EMEFIELE AS CBN GOVERNOR OVER CURRENCY SWAP CHAOS
Arewa Youth for Development and National Unity has called for immediate sack of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Godwin Emefiele over the Naira redesign policy.
According to them, Mr Emefiele’s insistence on the 31st January deadline for old Naira notes, has shown that he is a saboteur of the President Muhammadu’s government.
The group stated this while addressed pressmen at the Arewa house in Kaduna on Saturday.
Reactions have continued to trail the CBN Governor Naira design policy and his insistence on the 31 January deadline for the expiration of old Naira notes.
The latest from Northern Nigeria comes from the Arewa Youth for Development and National Unity who are now demanding for Me Emefiele’s immediate sack.
The group accuse the Central Bank Governor of politicizing the Naira redesign policy and working for opposition political parties at the detriment of the ruling government and Nigerian masses.
The haste and intransigence of Emefiele to stick to January 31st deadline, also comes under scrutiny.
They are concerned that, a large population of Nigerians, particularly in rural areas in the north will be broken by the policy which they consider harsh, unrealistic and unworkable.
They also frown at , Emefiele disregard for calls including the National Assembly and other elders to relax the deadline.
They say up till this weekend, most commercial banks are still dispensing the old notes, confirming their apprehension that the deadline is not feasible.
The group also laments difficulty faced by citizen in accessing the new currency notes.
They insist that unless sacked Mr. Emefiele’s policy has the capacity to bury the nation and subject more Nigerian to undue hardship.
