10 Constitutional Lawyers Suit Up To Remove, Prosecute CBN Governor Emefiele

Godwin Emefiele

The Federal High Court Abuja will in two weeks hear a suit filed by 10 constitutional lawyers seeking to remove from office the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr. Godwin Emefiele, and his prosecution for money laundering and other offenses.

The other defendants in the suit are President Muhammadu Buhari, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, and the Senate.

Among others, the suit seeks an order to compel the President to initiate the constitutional process of the removal of the Governor of the CBN for Abuse of Office, Money Laundering and Gross misconduct.

The group also seeks to nullify the recent scandalous CBN Employment exercise which was blown open by SaharaReporters, arguing that it was in violation of all recruitment laws and due process.

The hearing is on May 3.
