Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, on Wednesday, stated that the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Godwin Emefiele, is not fit to head the apex bank.
According to Akeredolu, the CBN governor ought to have been booted from office when he showed interest in contesting for the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The governor added that with the failed bid of Emefiele to contest the primary, he would ensure that he disrupts the 2023 polls.
Akeredolu spoke while receiving members of the Youth Directorate of the Presidential Campaign Council, PCC, of the APC led by Seyi Tinubu, disclosed that the rating of the APC has drastically dropped with the naira and fuel shortages in the country.
He also urged President Muhammadu Buhari to direct Emefiele to reverse the naira redesign policy now, adding that the new and old notes should be allowed to co-exist.
Akeredolu noted that despite an existing court injunction, the old notes seem to have ceased to be legal tender in the country.
“We have a problem we are facing in this country today. Our rating as a party is not that favourable. Let’s not deceive ourselves. Must it be now that we will have this financial policy?
“Okada, taxis, banks are not taking old notes again. There is an injunction, and everyone is behaving like there is no injunction.”
On his part, Seyi Tinubu, son of the APC presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, appreciated Akeredolu for his commitment to youth development and inclusion in the state.
