A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Femi Fani-Kayode, has said the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, will go down in history as the man that brought nothing but pain, hardship, and shame to Nigerians during his tenure as the head of the apex bank.
In a series of tweets via his Twitter handle on Thursday evening, Fani-Kayode claimed that Emefiele did everything to stop the President-elect and also sought to destroy APC and the country.
The former Minister of Aviation asserted that the CBN governor will pay a price in the future for his actions and will be brought to justice.
He wondered how Emefiele could ignore the invitation of the Department of State Service (DSS) and get away with it, saying that he is deemed as being above the law.
Fani-Kayode also expressed dismay that the CBN boss refused to obey the Supreme Court order and refused to order banks to return all the old notes confiscated illegally from citizens and allow them to be used freely.
The APC chieftain, however, said by June, Emefiele will face the law and be held accountable for his own insufferable arrogance and disrespect and his unlawful behaviour.
He wrote: “Godwin ‘The Greed’ Emefiele will go down in history as the man that brought nothing but pain, hardship & shame to Nigerians during his disgraceful tenure as Gov. of Central Bank. He did everything to stop the President-elect & he sought to derail & destroy APC & our country.
“For this, he will pay a price in the future & he will be brought to justice. What baffles me is whether he is deemed as being above the law in the present dispensation. Who is protecting him? How can he defy the DSS & refuse to honour their invitation & get away with it?
“How can he defy the 3rd arm of Govt. & the Supreme Court & REFUSE to order banks to return ALL the old notes they confiscated illegally from our citizens & allow them to be used freely? What has he done with the 1.2 TRILLION naira in old notes that he took from Nigerians?
“Whatever the case by June all this rascality and tomfoolery will stop and water will find its level. By then the jungle would have matured. By then he will face the law and be held accountable for his own insufferable arrogance and disrespect and his unlawful behaviour.”
