N60 Billion Printing: PDP Asks Buhari To Sack Finance Minister

The Peoples Democratic Party has asked President Buhari to sack Nigeria’s finance minister, Zainab Ahmed, over the alleged printing of N60 billion by the Central Bank of Nigeria.

The party in a statement by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, condemned the attempt by the Buhari-led regime to deny the printing of N60 billion by the CBN.

Punch had reported that Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki had raised the alarm that FG printed N60bn to support the March allocation to states.

But the finance minister denied the claim, saying that it is untrue.

Later, the CBN governor, Godwin Emefiele, gave a hint that the money could have been printed to support the economy.

The PDP alleged that “the admission by CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, that the apex bank has been printing money at the bidding of government, has vindicated its earlier stand that the Buhari-led APC administration is characterized by concealments, deceit, and falsehood”.

The PDP flays the Minister of Finance, Budget, and National Planning, Hajiya Zainab Ahmed, for attempting to mislead Nigerians.
