Emefiele’s Head Next on Buhari’s Chopping Board

Reports BREAKINGTIMES indicates that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor, Godwin Emefiele, may be the next top profile government official to lose his job.

Top presidential aides confided on Monday that the dragnet is drawing closer to Emefiele, who was appointed as head of the nation’s apex bank by former President Goodluck Jonathan on June 3, 2014.

The CBN chief has been in the eye of the storm lately following revelations that the nation’s treasury was practically emptied to fund the failed re-election bid of Jonathan in 2015.

Emefiele, investigators alleged, granted government officials unfettered access to the treasury during the electioneering period and even printed new currencies when the vault was drained.
