Nigerians storms CBN as they protest as they demand arrest and removal of Emefiele

A group of Nigerians has taken to the premises of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to protest the failed new naira notes policy and demand the resignation and arrest of the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele. The protesters held placards with various inscriptions, accusing Emefiele of inflicting undue hardship on Nigerians and demanding that he bring out the names of those who were given the missing 500 billion naira.

The group, led by George Uboh, the convener of the protest, vowed to occupy the apex bank's premises until their demands were met. According to Uboh, the Supreme Court had ruled that the new naira notes policy had caused undue hardship on the Nigerian masses, and Emefiele must be held accountable.

Some of the inscriptions on the placards read, "Emefiele Must Go," "CBN Now Bureau De Change," and "What Happened To Anchor Borrowers Programme." The protesters also demanded that Emefiele make the new naira notes available and address the people.

The failed new naira notes policy has caused a lot of controversy in Nigeria, with many Nigerians criticizing the government for wasting taxpayers' money on a project that has not yielded any positive results. The protesters are calling for accountability and transparency from the CBN and the government.
