Why Buhari Can’t Sack CBN Governor Emefiele – Aisha Yesufu

A Nigerian socio-political activist, Aisha Yesufu has stated that it is impossible for President Muhammadu Buhari to sack Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele.

Yesufu said the reason is because Buhari lacks the constitutional power to sack Emefiele.

Her statement comes after rumours emerged online that the governor who had indicated an interest in contesting for president under the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC had been sacked.

In a tweet on her official Twitter handle, Aisha, however, said she would love the governor to be sacked over the alleged politicisation of his office.

She wrote, “In as much as I would love @GodwinIEmefiele to be sacked for all his incompetence, failure and politicisation of his office, the President cannot SACK a CBN Governor!

“There is a process and that process must be followed. It is called “Rule of Law”.
