PDP calls for Emefiele’s arrest, probe over N100m APC presidential form

The opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has called for the arrest, probe and prosecution of the Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Godwin Emefiele, over the purchase of the N100m presidential form.

The spokesperson of the party, Debo Ologunagbo, during a press conference in Abuja, said the Governor of the apex bank cannot continue to be the Governor since it’s been made obvious that he’s purportedly joined partisan politics.

He questioned the continued stay of Emefiele as one that is not good for the country’s financial sector, inviting the anti-graft agencies to investigate the CBN governor.

“Now that Mr Emefiele has joined politics and reportedly obtained the N100 million presidential aspirant form from the APC, he cannot continue to resume at the CBN which is the commonwealth of our nation,” the PDP spokesman said.

“By this, Mr. Emefiele has become a clear and present danger to the health, integrity and reputation of the CBN and our nation’s financial sector. His continued stay as CBN Governor will further destroy investors’ confidence in the integrity of our nation’s financial regulatory Institution.

“Mr. Emefiele’s involvement in partisan politics while still holding office as CBN Governor underpins the impunity, lawlessness and recklessness of the Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration. It further confirms that the CBN under Emefiele has all along been the finance department of the APC.

“I stand with Nigerians in demanding the immediate arrest, investigation and prosecution of Emefiele by security and anti-graft agencies, particularly the EFCC for alleged financial malfeasance and abuse of office in the CBN under his watch.”

The Informant247 had reported that the CBN governor, Emefiele reportedly picked up the presidential forms of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, for the 2023 elections.

The N100 million forms were said to have been picked on the governor’s behalf by a group of supporters from the party in Abuja, on Friday morning.
