A member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Muhammed Gudaji Kazaure (APC-Jigawa) has expressed his disappointment at the re-appointment of Godwin Emefiele, governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, the lawmaker said he believes President Muhammadu Buhari was misled by someone he trusts into reappointing a corrupt man.
Kazaure said: “We met as different groups in the country and concluded yesterday to have this press conference because we are in the government of change and we expect to go to the next level but from the beginning of the appointment many of the people in the President’s camp are surprised at Emefiele’s reappointment.
“We at Buhari campaign organisation and many other groups believe he is a man of integrity and that he is fighting corruption.
“If we remember in this country, many things happened during Goodluck Ebele Jonathan’s administration, now we are accusing Dasuki, Deziani, and many people yet all the monies they stole was released through the Central Bank.
“With this type of appointment, I believe some people misled the President and he believed because he trusts the people that came and briefed him.
“Based on all that has happened in this country, we do not expect the President to reappoint Emefiele.
“Emefiele met the dollar at 180 so what is the reform now? Dollar is now 360, we do not have confidence in him.”
