Sani made this submission in a statement on his Twitter handle on Saturday morning, while reacting to the suspension of Emefiele as CBN governor.

Emefiele was officially suspended from his office on Friday, 9 June by President Tinubu. A statement signed by Wilson Bassey, a director of Information at the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), had directed him to hand over to Folashodun Adebisi Shonubi with immediate effect.

Emefiele’s suspension is pending the conclusion of investigations on issues about his office.

Sani, who commended the suspension of Emefiele said the action is not enough. According to him, the CBN needs thorough house cleaning and that can only be done by engaging auditors from outside the apex bank.

He alleged that the CBN was high-jacked by a cabal of elites who used it as a cash cow to enrich themselves.

He said: “The eviction of Emefiele is commendable. The appointment of Shonubi as acting Governor is commendable.”

“But the House cleaning of the CBN can only be done by engaging a team of auditors from outside of the CBN. Only they can professionally and thoroughly probe the apex Bank and tell the country how the Bank was run under Buhari’s Emefiele.

“The CBN was operated as an ATM of the Cabal, a Canteen and Cash Cow of the parasitic elites of the past administration,” Sani stated.
