JUST IN: Buhari Sacks Godwin Emefiele, CBN Governor

President Muhammadu Buhari has sacked Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele.

Recall that on May 11, the president ordered members of his cabinets who are interested in vying for political offices in 2023 to resign their position on or before 16 May.

While some of his appointees obeyed the order, many including the Governor of the CBN failed to resign.

Godwin Emefiele was engulfed in controversies after expressing genuine interest in becoming the next president of Nigeria and do not wish to resign his position before contesting.

After several disapproval by the public, calling for his resignation shortly after purchasing the N100 million form of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Emefiele approached the Federal High Court in Abuja to prevent the country’s electoral body INEC from disqualifying him.

On Tuesday, the CBN Governor withdrew the suit he filed against the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), and the Attorney General of the Federation over his presidential ambition.

The exact reasons for withdrawing the suit still remains unclear, his Lawyers also explained that he prayed the court to discontinue the suit and make an order striking it out.
