The suspension of Mr. Godwin Emefiele, the Central Bank Governor, has been criticized by the Agbor Professionals Business Group. The group expressed their disapproval, stating that such action will not contribute to the stability of our financial sector. Mr. Tony Ugbejie, the coordinator of the group, issued a statement highlighting the similarity with the previous suspension of the CBN governor, Sanusi Lamido, before completing his tenure.
The group further emphasized that this suspension could erode foreign investors’ confidence in our economy. They perceive it as a form of targeted persecution and urge the government to conduct a thorough investigation without resorting to unnecessary harshness.
In order to maintain a sense of calm among the populace, the group reassures the public that Mr. Emefiele will clear his name.
According to the statement “
This can make foreign investors not have so much faith in our economy.
“We believe this is a case of witch hunting, so we call on the government to do their investigation without resulting in unnecessary highhandedness.
“We call on our people to remain calm, assuring them that Emefiele will come clean.
