Video: Women and youth protest in Abuja, to seek immediate removal of CBN Governor, Emefiele

Around 100 women and youth protested in Abuja today demanding the removal of Central Bank governor Godwin Emefiele over rising inflation and a falling currency.

The protesters marched to the Central bank's headquarters in the capital Abuja, accusing it of failing to drag Africa's biggest economy and energy producer out of recession and stopping the descent of the naira against the dollar.

In front of the bank's main entrance, they held up placards saying "Emefiele must go" and "Where is

your conscience, Emefiele?" until policemen and soldiers scattered them.

It was the first sign of public unrest targeting the central bank during the current economic crunch.Watch the video below...
