The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has stated that the problem of the Central Bank of Nigeria is not with its president, Godwin Emefiele.
Obi, while speaking at the Chatham House in London on Monday stated that if elected as the president of Nigeria in the 2023 presidential election, he will ensure that the apex bank in Nigeria is made independent.
“I assure you that the Central bank will go back to being independent. The problem we have in CBN today is not with the CBN governor, it’s with the rascality we have in Government,” he said.
The CBN Governor, Emefiele, has been under fire from several Nigerians over his alleged partisan involvement.
Also, the Department of State Services has alleged that Emefiele is connected with terrorism activities.
