Abuja - Former Vice Presidential candidate, Tunde Bakare, has called for the dismissal of the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, over his involvement in the arms deal scandal, Punch reports.
Bakare, who is the Serving Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, said this while delivering his State of the Nation address, titled, ‘Roadmap to successful change,’ in his church in Lagos on Sunday.
He said the CBN governor deserves to be sacked and probed for releasing the money misappropriated by the embattled immediate past National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.
Bakare added that the CBN must be overhauled while the CBN Act 2007 must be amended, saying it confers too much power on the apex bank and encourages corruption.
He said the Act gives the CBN the power to decide the printing of the naira, the amount to be printed, the currency/dirty notes to be destroyed of which the CBN staff can take as much dirty notes as they like, and inject it back into the system while keeping all of us in the dark without any checks and balances.
