CBN, FAAN Relocation: Sack Keyamo, Cardoso, Group Tell Tinubu

2 Min Read

The Joint Action Committee of Northern Youth Associations has called for the sack of the Minister of Aviation, Festus Keyamo and the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Yemi Cadoso, over the planned relocation of agencies they superintend.

The Herald reports that the demand was made via a communiqué on Thursday by Murtala Abubakar, convener of the Joint Action Committee of Northern Youth Associations.

The communiqué was co-signed by the group’s director of public communication & strategy, Hashim Tom Maiyashi; and director, gender mobilization, Latifa Abdussalam.

The group appreciated the Northern caucus of the Senate for their stand on the matter but urged the lawmakers to seek Keyamo and Cardoso’s immediate removal.

The group advised against the move to sue the president to rescind the decision but stated that the lawmakers should rather give the president a deadline to stop the relocation.

The group said: “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.

“This 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 our nation’s economic and administrative landscape.”

“We call on our representatives in the National Assembly to exercise their full legislative oversight functions. We urge them to set a definite deadline for the executive to rescind the decisions related to the relocation of CBN departments and FAAN headquarters as well as to take proactive corrective measures.”
