Tinubu appointed CBN governor, Yemi Cardoso, with ‘patch-patch CV’ — Babachir Lawal



Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Babachir Lawal, has made an allegation against the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Governor, Yemi Cardoso.

He accused President Bola Tinubu of appointing the Cardoso with a patched-up curriculum vitae.

Lawal said Tinubu appointed Cardoso with such a CV because he was the Commissioner of Planning in Lagos State when the president was governor.

Appearing on Arise TV, the former SGF stressed that Lagos State was very small when compared to the entire country.

He maintained that Cardoso was not qualified to occupy the office of the CBN governor.

According to Lawal: “As to his Central Bank Governor, in my response to APC (All Progressives Congress) when they decided to take me on, I mentioned that the President had a Central Bank Governor with ‘patch-patch’ CV.

“I said ‘patch-patch’ CV because he was the commissioner of planning in Lagos State, a very small state out of the 36 states we have. It is a big economy but you cannot say he has enough experience to be in that position as the Central Bank governor.

“They also went on to say that he was a chairman of a bank with 13 branches, and that doesn’t give him sufficient exposure – a bank with 13 branches. I mentioned that they are all located around Lagos with two branches in Lagos, Warri, Benin City, and all that.”
