2023: Attempt By Tinubu’s Men In House Of Reps To Scuttle Emefiele’s Presidential Ambition Hits The Rock


Efforts by loyalists of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in the  House of Representatives, to force the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Dr Godwin Emefiele, to immediately tender his resignation over his Presidential ambition to pave the way for the former Lagos State Governor have hit the rock.

It was gathered that the loyalists, led by the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, had perfected plans to pass a resolution at the emergency plenary session earlier summoned for Monday, May 9, to the effect that the CBN Governor had abused his office by purchasing the Presidential nomination form of the APC while still in office and as such should tender his resignation, failing which the President should sack him.

According to findings, when the alleged plans came to the knowledge of the Reps loyal to the CBN boss across the political parties, they reportedly regrouped and marshalled plans to counter the move and resolved to sack all the APC Principal Officers for supporting such a move.

According to our source, Emefiele’s loyalists said “we received a notice of an emergency plenary session, we were made to believe that the session was to discuss the crisis in the nation’s aviation sector, we supported the idea but only for those championing the Presidential ambition of Bola Tinubu to cook up another agenda which is to force the CBN Governor out of office because of his perceived Presidential ambition. This is not a Banana Republic”.

The latest information is that those against the move have gone back to the drawing board to counter the ignoble plans, threatening to push for the impeachment of the Principal Officers of the ruling party, who will also be made to explain to Nigerians and the entire world how they padded the last National budget, the facts and figures of which they have at their disposal.

Further findings revealed that when the plans of the CBN Governor’s loyalists filtered into the ears of Speaker Gbajabiamila, he quickly directed that the earlier announced emergency plenary session, where the aviation matter would have been discussed and Emefiele’s resignation matter would have been raised, be cancelled.

It was gathered that following this development, Gbajabiamila quickly resolved that the crisis in the  aviation sector should be handled by the leadership of the House, which included all the leaders of the political parties represented in the Green Chambers.

Consequently, the Speaker reportedly directed the Clerk of the House of Representatives, Dr. Yahaya Danzaria, to issue an official statement for the cancellation of the emergency plenary, earlier slated for Monday, May 9.

The statement, dated May 8, 2022, reads: “the leadership of the House of Representatives has cancelled the proposed emergency plenary session earlier scheduled to hold on Monday, 9th May, 2022 over the lingering crisis occasioned by the hike in the price of Aviation Fuel, otherwise called Jet-A.

‘All Hon Members, staff, media and the general public should please take note”.
