Northern youths tell Tinubu to sack Keyamo, Cardoso over FAAN, CBN relocation to Lagos
Some northern youths have advised President Bola Tinubu to immediately sack the Minister of Aviation, Festus Keyamo and the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Yemi Cardoso, over the planned relocation of key departments and an agency under their supervision.
This was contained in 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.”
