The Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle, has urged the president, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) not to allow the Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele, from embarking on a foreign trip.
This followed speculations that the president had approved the request of the CBN governor to proceed on study leave.
Matawalle, who stated this in a statement on Monday said Buhari has shown good faith by demonstrating his readiness to leave the office.
He, however, urged the president to frown at any attempt by any person seeking to damage the good job he has done.
He said, “President Buhari and his wife Aisha Buhari have shown good faith and shown they want a seamless orderly, and peaceful transfer of power to the incoming administration,” Matawalle said.
“I’m aware that some officers in the outgoing government are moving to surreptitiously leave the country at this critical time they are needed to answer specific questions, though I would not want to mention their names here,” he added.
“President Buhari should not heed their inordinate and unpatriotic plan. These plans are dangerous and devilish.
They show clearly that these officers have something to hide. This must be halted immediately. Any plan to evade rendering accounts is neither in the interest of accountability, transparency and anti-corruption,” he added.
