2023: CBN now an extension of APC – Ohanaeze gives Emefiele one-month resignation ultimatum


The youth wing of apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide has demanded the immediate resignation of the Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele.

Saga Gist reports that the development is in connection with the N100m presidential form of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Emefiele was within the week listed as one of those who have purchased the form. But on Saturday, the CBN boss said the form was purchased by farmers and patriots.

However, in a statement on Sunday by OYC President-General, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, he said the Igbo youths can’t be hoodwinked by Emefiele’s claims.

“Where has it ever be heard that the Governor of a country’s apex bank will have anything to do with partisan politics?

“This is an absurdity taken too far. We are even seeing the futile efforts by the CBN Governor to convince gullible members of the society that the form was not purchased by him.

“We must say that his defence is dead on arrival, it’s like punching the air. What of the hundreds of branded cars that have been trending on social media? And could his so-called father Christmas farmers and patriots have purchased APC form for him if he were not a card carrying member of the party?” Okwu asked.

He said the only option left for the CBN boss was to resign honourably or be disgraced out of office.

“We can’t afford to continue to retain a card carrying member of the APC as CBN Governor. We now know why the economy is facing all manner of flops for the past 7 years.

“We can’t have on the saddle a CBN Governor who is using our common wealth to sponsor the APC and this is why we are giving Emefiele 30 days to resign or be exposed. We have information on how he has been romancing with politicians in APC. Should he fail to resign, Nigerians will hear more about him,” Okwu vowed.
