Northern youths want CBN Governor sacked within 21 days

Group under the auspices of Northern Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) has called for voluntary resignation of Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr. Godwin Emefiele within the next 21 days or do something to put the nation’s economy on the right track.


They said though they were not economists but they are aware that economy of the country is in shambles with foreign exchange rate worst in recent times, calling on President Mohammadu Buhari to look for people with technical know-how to join him to fix the economy before it gets out of hand completely.

President, NYCN, Comrade Isah Abubakar in a statement on Wednesday noted that lack of economy and financial direction have increased poverty rate in recent times from 60 per cent to 75 per cent with attendant consequences that have increased number of impoverished Nigerians to about 120 million.

The statement read in part: “after watching with keen interest the present economic hardship in the country, we are saying no thanks to CBN Governor who has not been able to come up with any plan that can take us out of the wood as head of our financial body, we at NYCN while supporting the administration of President Mohammadu Buhari are saying we are not happy with his economy team hence the need to look inward for better hands.

“We now pay as high as about N500 to a dollar. This has brought serious hunger and hardship on our people because most of what we eat are imported and are been affected by high foreign exchange. Inflation has increased from 7 percent in 2013 to 17 percent in quota 4 of 2015 and quota 3 of 2016 which bothers the CBN Governor and Finance Minister, Funke Adeosun agreed to the fact that economy is in trouble.

“Unemployment is another problem as it has soared to 24 percent at a period when millions of beverages, tobacco, banks and hospitality sector workers have been added to already saturated Labour market. Small and medium scale enterprises that were coming up are folding up as they can not bear the exchange rate that has sky rocketed beyond their reach.

“This has show total failure of the CBN governor and he has proved his total incompetence to manage Nigeria economy. It is to this regard we demand for his resignation as the CBN governor and urged Mr President to appoint a competent hand not minding where he comes from, his ethnicity, or religion background. We only need someone with sound economics nitty-gritty who can manage our delicate economy. This is because we demand nothing but a better Nigeria.

“Failure of the CBN governor to voluntarily resign or put the economy in the right track within the 21-day of this ultimatum, NYCN will be forced to organize and mobilize mass protests in front of the CBN headquarters in Abuja”, the statement added.

The statement however called on All Progressives Congress (APC) led government at various levels to stop playing blame games and work for people that elected them into varying offices they are occupying, noting that they were voted in to effect positive change the country needed and not to keep complaining.

“We know we are not broke. It’s just that only few cabal and multi national companies are holding it. The time to work is now”.

  1. They should come and sack him


  2. What nonsense


  3. Good for him


  4. Hey Malams, go back to your country.


  5. If Emefiele applies himself very well to the job, he will make success out of it but bcos he is more concerned with pleasing members of his “Lagos mafia”, he is being distracted and therefore loosing focus!


  6. That maybe good to call for his resignation. Pls try to vote for my party coming 2019 and I will single handedly turn the misfortune to fortune.
    U think you are wise.
    Is only god that is wise.
    Nigeria is too big to be govern by illiterate.


  7. That sounds good, but we should start from the head (President Mohammadu Buhari).

    Yes! We should start from the head. Emefiele was there during GEJ time and the economy was not like this. It is the tight hand policy of PMB that dried the economy. Remember, he said at the begining, that your money is safe in his hands. All our money is stocked in PMB’s hand like a container rusting away instead of being in a vessel flowing and reinvigorating the economy.


  9. Diversionary tactics from so-called Northern youths

    Buhari is the bigest mistake Nigeria has ever made.
