The presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress in the 2023 general elections, Dumebi Kachikwu, 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.
Kachikwu gave this charge during his Democracy Day broadcast on Monday, claiming the three institutions are the bane of corruption in Nigeria.
He noted that for the economy of the new administration to succeed, probing the institutions is non-negotiable.
“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.
