Agbakoba Congratulates Tinubu for Getting Rid of Emefiele, Bawa, Fuel Subsidy and Forex Corruption


Dr Olisa Agbakoba has given kudos to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for getting rid of Godwin Emefiele from CBN, Bawa from EFCC, removing fuel subsidy and allow forex to compete freely against the naira.

Agbakoba, who is a former President of the Nigerian Bar Association gave the congratulation to the President for taking the right steps and equally urge him to dive into INEC  and his tweet reads;

Full congratulations go to President Tinubu @officialABAT for getting rid of Emefiele, Bawa, fuel subsidy, and forex corruption. Endemic corruption has suffered a massive blow.

Next, it is for the president to dismantle INEC @inecnigeria. Everyone will agree that logistically, the 2023 elections are the worst in our history. I do not refer to the merits of the election results. Many results are disputed and are in tribunals. Both petitioners and respondents suffered at the hands of an incompetent INEC.

As we await rulings from the courts, massive reforms of the electoral framework ought to begin. However, this means that the INEC Chairman will have to leave office by resignation or removal; otherwise, the reform task will be impeded.

I quickly add that the suggested reforms have nothing to do with the merits of the election results at all. Both winners and losers of the elections were victims of the failure of INEC.

Confidence in Nigeria’s democracy will be enhanced by a deep cleansing of INEC.
