Many Nigerians are angry that President Muhammadu Buhari has not still sacked the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Godwin Emefiele, despite rumours that he was sacked on Wednesday.
Many Nigerians were hoping that the rumour of the sack was true, but they were disappointed that Emefiele is still in office.
For the second day running the CBN Governor has been trending on Twitter.
On Thursday, Nigerians have continued to react and vent their anger as they expected that Emefiele should have resigned or be sacked.
Some described him as the worst CBN Governor ever.
Chukwuemeka Chikelu tweeted: “This is the worst CBN Governor in history, he met the Dollar at 164 Naira, and today Dollar is whopping 608 Naira, that is 270% depreciation under his watch.”
This man has to be the most useless CBN governor ever elected. Very dumb man!! Sigh!!! https://t.co/egJNDpKxeb

AA Ibrahim wrote: “Nigerians believe by law that the CBN governor can’t be sacked. When Jonathan attempted sacking Sanusi in 2014, we said it was illegal. Today, we are asking Buhari to sack Emefiele. You see we don’t care about the law. The court of public opinion cares about public opinions only.”
Sanusi was the best CBN governor we ever had but yet he was suspended then sacked for speaking then the truth.

Kene Kambili wrote: “Emefiele did a terrible job as CBN governor. How that man managed to hold that position for so long is a testament to Buhari’s incompetence.”
By the time what Godwin Emefiele has stolen as CBN governor will be revealed, The country will not contain us.

Most certainly the worst. His first project was to put charge on withdrawal from ATM. CBN governor working for banks instead of large population. He’d rather work for banks cos he benefits hugely from it https://t.co/2xAlymfC1i

CBN Governor was so notorious. Meffy once told Aboki FX to come out & fight him. Sanusi was tacit about his partisanship, until GEJ sacked him. But Godwin Emefiele was a complete dunce. He imagined he could contest whist still in Office? History will be so unkind to him

Aisha Yesufu said “In as much as I would love@GodwinIEmefiele to be sacked for all his incompetence, failure and politicisation of his office, the President cannot SACK a CBN Governor! There is a process and that process must be followed. It is called Rule of Law.”
Emefele is the worst CBN Governor we've ever had. He met the Dollar at ₦164, and today Dollar is ₦600+. And na same idiot been want contest for President. Ikon Allah!😂😂😂

Emefiele is not only the worst CBN Governor, he was the first to be openly partisan.
Sadly,this highly corrupt incompetent man supervised the worst monetary policy regime, degrading our Naira to N610.
His sack is a good riddance,EFCC should go through his files from 2017. pic.twitter.com/wovddznihU
