Nigerians are calling for the resignation of the Governor of the Central Bank, Godwin Emefiele.
Majority of the masses are growing weary of the continuous rise of the Naira, in relation to the US Dollar.
The call for his resignation is coming after the Naira fell further in the parallel market to trade for N670 against the U.S. dollar on Monday.
Reacting to the free fall, many called on Emefiele who has been Governor of the apex Bank since 2014 for tender his resignation.
Henry Shield asked on Twitter:
What is Emefiele still doing at the CBN?

Doctor Cruise pointed out that by printing new Naira notes, it further devalues the currency.
Did an ATM withdrawal this morning & all notes were newly printed
In a sane country Godwin Emefiele should have resigned as the CBN Governor
But he keeps showing his incompetence by printing more Naira notes into circulation; increasing the supply of an already dying currency pic.twitter.com/8g8SGBn5xE

The way Naira is losing value is so scary. If care is not taken, by the end of the year, it's going to be N1000 to a dollar.
Lest we forget, when this administration came it was N180 to a dollar. Emefiele should resign, let someone more competent take over before it's too late. pic.twitter.com/daaC8YQ4DC

A serious country will not have someone like Godwin Emefiele as their CBN governor. Buhari kept him there to be printing money for him.

Mavis Ikpeme also said:
How does Emefiele still have a job as CBN governor since 2014 ?
It just means him and the federal government are enablers of this failed system .
They can’t sack him, he can’t snitch on them but in all these, the poor masses are the collateral .

A dollar is now exchanging for 1$=631NGN. That car wey you no buy last week, because your money remain 50k to complete don add another money today. Buhari is still chilling in Aso Rock and Emefiele enjoying his morning coffee in his office.
