Naira Devaluation: Cardoso And Wale Edun Are Two Confused People – PDP Chieftain Tells Tinubu To Sack Finance Team


Ridwan Olanrewaju, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has called for the sack of the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Yemi Cardoso, and the minister of finance and coordinating economy, Wale Edun.

He stated that they are confused individuals who were allowed in office because their godfather rigged the 2023 presidential elections.

Olanrewaju insisted that the action should be taken due to the duo’s failed economic policies that have weakened the naira.

Olanrewaju lamented that the ruling party was always playing the victim card and not taking up responsibilities.

He explained that the APC has fought against parents who send their kids abroad for schooling, Bureau de Change (BDC) operators, and many others rather than implementing economic policies to strengthen the naira.

He said: “Mr Cardoso and Wale Edun are two confused people who found their way into power because their godfather rigged his way into Aso Rock, not because they are truly qualified. It’s sad that Tinubu continued from where Buhari stopped. The government of Padi Padi. “Only in Nigeria will the country’s financial officers adopt unreal policies to protect the weak currency and recruit many bodies to carry out day-to-day propaganda on the media.

“Binance was never an issue. Binance had been in Nigeria long before these people came to power. Mr Cardoso, under the president’s instruction, floated the naira at the very wrong time, which led to borrowing money to defend the naira. They choose to blame finance because they are not used to taking responsibility. “They have blamed parents who have kids schooling abroad, they have blamed BDC agents, and they hope they won’t one day blame God for their own frivolous actions.

“The only solution is for the president to sack both Wale Edun and Yemi Cardoso and then recruit worthy candidates who can create proper policies that will change the current system; the question is, does the president himself understand the country’s real situation? The answer is no.”
