Emefiele Must Go!

In a letter written by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr Abubakar Malami (SAN) to the Central Bank governor, Godwin Emefiele, Malami said there are fraud allegations in the CBN’s foreign exchange allocation and transaction which is supported by several documents.

EiE, BudgIT and 14 entrepreneurs had earlier written an open letter to the Central Bank governor, Godwin Emefiele, demanding for his resignation. This is due to CBN’s foreign exchange policies which have grossly affected the growth of industries and the economy at large.
