Malami and Emefiele are now Nigeria’s public enemies,- Tinubu’s spokesman, Onanuga.




Malami and Emefiele are now Nigeria’s public enemies,- Tinubu’s spokesman, Onanuga.

Abubakar Malami (SAN), Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), and Godwin Emefiele, Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), have been referred to as Nigeria’s “public enemies” by the spokesman for APC presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Bayo Onanuga.


NewsReport gathered that Onanuga said that by following in the footsteps of Emefiele, Malami has joined those who are determined to increase the suffering that Nigerians are experiencing. Onanuga was responding to a preliminary objection filed by the AGF asking the Supreme Court of Nigeria to dismiss a suit filed by three APC governors to stop the implementation of the CBN’s naira redesign policy.

In the preliminary objection, Malami had contended that the plaintiffs did not show a reasonable cause of action against the defendant.

In a tweet he posted on his official Twitter account, @aonanuga1956, on Wednesday night, Onanuga condemned the objection filed by Malami, tagging him along with the CBN Governor as an enemy of Nigeria.

“Abubakar Malami is also a public enemy like Emefiele.”

In another tweet, the Tinubu spokesman wrote:
“Never in our history have we witnessed a Central Bank governor such as Emefiele desecrating the office as he does.”
“Now he is organizing protests against the Supreme Court for quashing the unreasonable deadline of his naira swap.”
The objection filed by Malami was in response to a suit filed by Governors Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna, Yahaya Bello of Kogi, and Bello Matawalle of Zamfara States, who sued the Federal Government and the CBN before the apex court seeking to stop the implementation of the redesign policy on the grounds that the deadline was short and would not fulfill the reasonable notice obligation imposed by law.
