Human Rights Lawyer, Wahab Shittu has described as lawful the decision by Pressient Bola Tinubu to suspend the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele and the EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa.
He said the President does not require the nod of the National Assembly to carry out the exercise.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria stated this while speaking with newsmen at the reception and the unveiling of social contact tagged Sustaining of Legacy of Excellence by the newly sworn in Senator for Lagos Central District, Senator Wasiu Sanni Eshinlokun at the Eko Arcade Club on Bode Thomas in Surulere.
He said since the law gave the President the power to appoint those suspended, it is within his prerogative to also suspend them especially within the current circumstances.
According to him, those who are attributing the President’s action as being selective were not sincere adding more Nigerians would be quizzed if they question to answer.
Barrister Wahab Shittu believes the President took off well but requires the support of all to succeed in delivering his electioneering promises.

Represented by Hon Wahab Alawiye-King, the First Lady said her successor, Senator Wasiu Sanni Eshinlokun will improve on the empowerment and training programmes for people of Lagos Central Senatorial District.
On his part, the Chairman of the APC in Lagos Island, Alhaji Olayiwola Sadiq disagreed with those saying that the new National Assembly leadership will serve as a rubber stamp to the executive.

According to him, the people of the country will soon enjoy the removal of fuel subsidy when the palliative plans by government are fully implemented
