PDP Calls For Emefiele’s Resignation Over Alleged Fraud






(AFRICAN EXAMINER) -The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday have called for the immediate resignation and prosecution of the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, over the allegations made by the All Progressives Congress (APC) that he superintended over massive looting of funds in the apex bank.

The party disclosed this in a statement by Kola Ologbondiyan, its National Publicity Secretary on Thursday.

The statement enjoined the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to immediately invite Emefiele for questioning concerning allegations by the National Secretary of the illegal APC National Caretaker Committee, Senator John Akpan Udoedehe,that the CBN governor was in charge of the fraud that took place in the CBN.

Ologbondiyan stated that Nigerians were shocked when Udoedehe on Channels TV programme “Politics Today” of Wednesday disclosed that Emefiele supervised the stealing of money in the apex bank.

He also disclosed that the PDP has waited a week for Udoedehe to recant on his statement or for the Central Bank governor to repudiate the APC National Secretary.



“Our party insists that beyond Akpan Udoedehe’s allegation, the tenure of Emefiele as CBN governor under the APC administration has witnessed colossal failures of monetary and fiscal policies, requiring him to vacate the office and hand himself over for investigation.

“It is instructive to note that when Emefiele took office as CBN Governor in 2014 the naira exchanged for N164 to a dollar. 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,” the statement read.

The PDP subsequently urged the EFCC not to “allow this revelation to be swept under the carpet as it borders on serious economic sabotage which sanctions are clearly spelt out under our laws”.
