A group of lawyers has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to sack Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor, Godwin Emefiele.

The Arewa Young Lawyers Forum (AYLF) said that Buhari should fire Emefiele because of his “lackadaisical style of management”.

The group made the call via a statement issued by President, Barrister Abubakar Sadiq Ilelah.

The statement reads in part:

“Mr Emefiele is rated low in the performance index compared to his predecessors. He has drastically failed in promoting monetary policies to stem the continuous free fall of the Naira, halt the rising debt profile of Nigeria and poor management of the country’s foreign exchange.”

“We are hereby giving President Buhari 14 days ultimatum to take action that will save the Nigerian economy by disengaging and removing Mr Emefiele as the governor of CBN.”
