“The eviction of Emefiele is commendable. The appointment of Shonubi as acting Governor is commendable. But the house cleaning of the CBN can only be done by engaging a team of auditors from OUTSIDE of the CBN,” the lawmaker turned social critic wrote.

“Only they can professionally and thoroughly probe the apex Bank and tell the country how the Bank was run under Buhari’s Emefiele.

“The CBN was operated as an ATM of the Cabal, a Canteen and Cash Cow of the parasitic elites of the past administration,” he added.
