‘He Must Give Full Account To Tinubu’, Matawalle Rejects Emefiele’s ‘Study Leave’

Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to cancel the study leave purported granted to the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele.

The governor said Emefiele does not deserve to go on such leave due to his monetary policy which he called “a disastrous naira swap policy” that subjected Nigerians to untold hardship.

Daily trust report that, last week that Buhari granted a study leave to the CBN governor which will see him travel out of the country.

But in response to the information, Matawalle suggested that Buhari give up the leave in order to ensure a smooth transfer of power.

But he also praised the President, calling him a patriot, a democracy, and a man of unquestionable morality.

Buhari, according to Matawalle, has also shown good faith by indicating that he is prepared for a smooth transfer of power to the future administration.

Daily trust report that, “President Buhari and his wife Aisha Buhari have shown good faith and shown they want a seamless orderly and peaceful transfer of power to the incoming administration,” said Matawalle.

“They are eager to make sure the new government begins quickly, without any obstacles, and in a way that is in the best interests of our nation.

“This is the appropriate course of action, and I applaud President Buhari and his wife for their dignified behaviour.

However, other government employees have behaved differently. They appear to be trying to make things difficult for the incoming government by their actions.

“President Buhari ought not to permit this. Any attempt to undermine the excellent work he has done should make him grimace.

“I want to implore President Buhari right here and right now to deny any officer who is essential to the launch of Aswaj Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s forthcoming administration any study leave or other type of leave.

According to Vanguard, “Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria Godwin Emefiele is one of these people who has been linked to a study leave in the media.

“In the interest of a peaceful handover of power, accountability, and good governance, the President should cancel the leave if it has been approved, as reported in the media.”

According to Vanguard, Emefiele needs to answer to the incoming administration for everything that happened while he was in charge, according to Matawalle.

“CBN Governor Emefiele oversaw the administration of the nation’s monetary and financial systems. He is the one who conceived of and carried out the recent disastrous naira swap policy, also known as the naira confiscation programme, which caused tremendous suffering and agony for Nigerians and slowed down our economy, according to him.

“Two of my brother-governors and I fought tenaciously until we won a reprieve for our people from Emefiele and company over this ill-advised strategy from the federal government.

“This same Emefiele now requests to go on study leave with only around 10 months left in his employment, ostensibly in an effort to avoid having to submit accounting. This must change.

“President Buhari ought not to support this. Emefiele needs to continue working so that he can fully account for all that happened while he was in charge to the new administration.

He must respond to whatever inquiries the future administration may have, especially because he still has a few months remaining in office.
