Written by on May 16, 2022

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned as reckless, irresponsible, and unpardonable, the comment by the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, that he is “having a lot of fun” in his actions which are in violation of the CBN Act 2007 and the Public Service Rules.

According to PDP’s spokesman, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, this comment by Emefiele, who also stated that Nigerians can go ahead and “have heart attack” over the widespread anxiety in the country arising from his involvement in partisan politics, is provocative and enough to trigger a nation-wide restiveness, pitch Nigerians against the CBN, shut down the economy and destabilize the polity.

The PDP in its statement asserted that despite Mr. Emefiele’s alleged withdrawal from the presidential race “due to the pressure by our party, he still cannot continue as CBN Governor having become partisan as a card-carrying member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The opposition party urged Mr. Emefiele to be ready for investigation, prosecution, and possible conviction for the atrocities allegedly superintended by him as the CBN Governor.
