Why Kemi Adeosun, Emefiele Must Be Sacked Immediately – Dino Melaye Talks Tough

A member of the Senate representing Kogi-West Senatorial District, Senator Dino Melaye has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to sack Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele, Minister of Finance Kemi Adeosun as well as Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udo Udoma over Nigeria’s economic recession.

He made this call on Sunday in a statement in Abuja, accusing them of lacking the capacity to deliver on the mandates of their ministries and agencies.

Melaye said, “At the moment, it must be crystal clear to all discerning minds that the President’s widely-acclaimed magical body language has lost its presumed aura and efficacy. His no-nonsense demeanor is equally neither instilling fear nor commanding respect and loyalty from among his cabinet members.

“It is therefore obvious that the time for barking is over; now is the time to bite and boot out all those who have demonstrated, in the past several months, a crass lack of capacity to effectively carry out the functions of their office.”

“The President must immediately transit from mere rhetoric to drastic but positive action to save the economy and Nigeria from total collapse. The hunger in the land is real, pervasive, widespread and debilitating for the poor masses.

“As I walk the streets of my constituency these days, I constantly harbour a foreboding that I could be stoned by my angry constituents for the failure of Mr. President to fulfill his campaign promises and expectations to Nigerians.

“Nigeria is tottering on a dangerous precipice, sliding perilously to a certain catastrophe if the current economic malaise is not halted immediately.”
