Joke Taken too far - Akeredolu Reacts to CBN Governor Presidential Ambition
The Ondo state governor; Rotimi Akeredolu ha reacted to the purchase of APC presidential form by the Central Bank of Nigeria governor; Godwin Emefiele.
Akeredolu took to Twitter to express his dissatifaction about the development;
The news of the purchase of APC Presidential Nomination Forms purportedly by the supporters of CBN Gov., @GodwinIEmefiele has been received with palpable disbelief & shock... This act, if unchecked, timeously, portends great danger
It is incontrovertible that Mr Emefiele enjoys a constitutionally protected right to belong to any group... It is, however, difficult to imagine that a person who occupies the exalted & sensitive office of the Governor of the CBN will be this brazen in actualizing his ambition
The combined effect of the Public Service Rules, CBN Act and the 1999 Constitution, as amended, exposes not only the oddity inherent in this brash exercise of presumed right to associate.
Consequently, we admonish Mr Emefiele to leave the office, immediately, for him to pursue his interest. He cannot combine partisan politics with the very delicate assignment of his office.
Should he refuse to quit, it becomes incumbent on the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces to remove him forthwith. This is a joke taken too far.
