A group of northern youths has called for the dismissal of Minister of Aviation, Festus Keyamo, and Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Yemi Cardoso.

They are unhappy with the planned relocation of certain departments and an agency under their supervision.

The group, known as the Joint Action Committee of Northern Youth Associations, expressed their concerns in a communiqué.

They commended the Northern Caucus of the Senate for their stance on the issue but urged them to take further action by seeking the immediate removal of Keyamo and Cardoso.

The group suggested that instead of suing the president to reverse the decision, the lawmakers should set a deadline for him to halt the relocation.

The group said: “Given the magnitude of the decisions by the CBN and FAAN that demonstrate the unsuitability of their chief executives to preside over federal institutions, we urge our representatives to demand the immediate removal of the Governor of the CBN and the Minister of Aviation from their positions.

“This is not a punitive measure but an urgent step to restore public trust, ensure accountability, and uphold the constitutional integrity of key institutions that significantly influence our nation’s economic and administrative landscape.”

“We call on our representatives in the National Assembly to exercise their full legislative oversight functions. We urge them to set a definite deadline for the executive to rescind the decisions related to the relocation of CBN departments and FAAN headquarters as well as to take proactive corrective measures.”
