Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande blames disgraced Godwin Emefiele for all that was wrong with the Buhari regime



Laolu Akande, former spokesperson for the immediate past Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has described the alleged damage the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr Godwin Emefiele, perpetrated at the apex bank as colossal.

Akande also said the suspension and investigation of Emefiele was long over due and should be supported by any Nigerians who value integrity.

He stated this via his twitter handle on Saturday, saying that Emefiele’s “shenanigans” were detriment to Nigerians.

He wrote, “It was about time d CBN Governor faced suspension & investigation. All people of goodwill & those who value integrity, irrespective of political leanings would be thankful for this development.

“Emefiele was given a long rope, but he failed to redeem himself. His shenanigans & the colossal damages he perpetrated at the CBN was to the utter detriment of the Nigerian people. This is not even about cashless policy, but apparent corruption especially in the dual exchange rate policy which never made sense. What a sigh of relief!”

Emefiele was suspended on Friday by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and was subsequently arrested by the Department of State Services.

This was contained in a statement issued by Willie Bassey, director of information, Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, on Friday night.

The president directed Mr Emefiele to hand over to the deputy governor in charge of operations pending the conclusion of investigation into his office.

“This is sequel to the ongoing investigation of his office and the planned reforms in the financial sector of the economy.

“Mr Emefiele has been directed to immediately hand over the affairs of his office to the Deputy Governor (Operations Directorate), who will act as the Central Bank Governor pending the conclusion of investigation and the reforms.”
