Dumebi Kachikwu, the African Democratic Congress’ presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections, has urged President Bola Tinubu to order an investigation into the activities of the Central Bank of Nigeria, the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited, and the Nigeria Customs Service.
During his Democracy Day broadcast on Monday, Kachikwu charged that the three institutions are the bane of corruption in Nigeria.
He stated that probing the institutions is a must for the new administration’s economy to succeed.
“Our President must immediately investigate the activities of our CBN governor, the most political CBN governor we’ve had in the history of Nigeria.
“Today’s pillars of the economy are the CBN, the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited and the Nigeria Customs Service. Every other sphere of our economy derives from these pillars, but they are the most corrupt pillars of our society. If the President has started working on the CBN, he must simultaneously spread his tentacles to the NNPCL and the customs”, he stated.
Recall that last Friday, Tinubu’s government suspended Godwin Emefiele as the Governor of CBN.
