Northern youths have called for the sack of the Minister of Aviation, Festus Keyamo, and the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Yemi Cadoso.
The youths under the aegis of Joint Action Committee of Northern Youth Associations said the duo should be removed over the planned relocation of agencies they supervise.
This was contained in a communiqué issued by the group and signed by its convener, Murtala Abubakar; Director of Public Communication & Strategy, Hashim Tom Maiyashi; and Director, Gender Mobilization, Latifa Abdussalam.
It praised the Northern caucus of the Senate just as it urged the lawmakers to seek the sack of Cardoso and Keyamo.
It advised against the move to sue the President to rescind the decision but stated that the lawmakers should rather give him a deadline to stop the relocation.
“Given the magnitude of the decisions by the CBN and FAAN that demonstrate the unsuitability of their chief executives to preside over federal institutions, we urge our representatives to demand the immediate removal of the Governor of the CBN and the Minister of Aviation from their positions,” it said.
According to the communiqué, it is not a punitive measure but an urgent step to restore public trust, ensure accountability, and uphold the constitutional integrity of key institutions that significantly influence Nigeria’s economic and administrative landscape.
It said the decisions that impact on the country’s economic and administrative landscape must be made with competence, transparency and adherence to constitutional principles, just as it called on representatives in the National Assembly to exercise their full legislative oversight functions.
