FAAN, CBN Relocation: Sack Keyamo, Cardoso Now, Northern Youths Tell Tinubu

by Victor Ndubuisi

Some young people in the north have strongly advised Bola Tinubu to fire Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor Yemi Cardoso and Aviation Minister Festus Keyamo as soon as possible, according to a statement released on Thursday by Murtala Abubakar, convener of the Joint Action Committee of Northern Youth Associations.

This request is in reaction to the important departments and an agency they oversee being scheduled to relocate.


The group’s director of gender mobilisation, Latifa Abdussalam, and director of public communication and strategy, Hashim Tom Maiyashi, co-signed the communiqué, which expressed gratitude to the Senate’s Northern Caucus for their position on the issue. But the organisation pushed the MPs to go it a step further and demand Keyamo and Cardoso’s immediate dismissal.

The group recommended that lawmakers give President Tinubu a deadline to stop the relocation instead of suing the president to overturn the decision.


The group stated, “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 action, but rather a necessary step to reestablish public confidence, guarantee accountability, and protect the constitutional integrity of important institutions that have a substantial impact on the administrative and economic landscape of our country.


“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.”
