- “Painfully, under the leadership of Emefiele, the CBN has failed…”
EKOHOTBLOG reports that the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called for the immediate resignation of the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele.
The PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, made the call while sepaking to newsmen at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja on Thursday.
Ologbondiyan said the tenure of Emefiele as CBN Governor under the APC administration had witnessed huge failures of monetary and fiscal policies, requiring him to vacate the office.
The National Publicity Secretary added that it was instructive to note that the naira exchanged for N164 to a dollar when Emefiele took office as CBN Governor in 2014.
He said, “Today, in the hands of Emefiele and the APC, the naira has tumbled to near N600 to a dollar, putting the nation’s economy on its knees.
“Painfully, under the leadership of Emefiele, the CBN has failed in its core mandate of managing the economy and took a dive into propaganda, with claims that do not reflect the harsh economic reality on the ground,” Ologbondiyan stated.
