Why I didn’t sack Emefiele over alleged political ambition – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has given reasons for not sacking the Governor of the Central Bank, Godwin Emefiele, over his partisan activities.

In an interview with Bloomberg, Mr Buhari said the Governing Board of the CBN has the power to determine if the governor erred or not.

Mr Emefiele came under fire in May after a group procured the N100 million presidential expression of interest and nomination form of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The CBN governor later rejected the presidential forms, noting that should he heed the call to run for the presidency, he would use his “own hard-earned savings from over 35 years of banking leadership to buy my own Nomination Forms.”

Despite the outcry against his partisanship, Mr Emefiele also sued the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice over his eligibility.

He asked the court to stop INEC from disqualifying him from participating in the primary election of his preferred political party.

Amidst all these, Mr Buhari refused to call the CBN boss to order or relieve him of his position.
