TINUBU REVEALS MAIN REASON CBN FORMER GOVERNOR, EMEFIELE WAS FIRED, ARRESTED
President Bola Tinubu has finally spoken about the suspension and subsequent arrest of the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele.
Tinubu, during an interactive session with Nigerians residing in France and neighbouring countries on Friday, said the financial system was rotten under Emefiele.
President Tinubu revealed that many of those living outside the country were unable to send money to their parents and relatives in Nigeria, due to multiple exchange rates.
According to President Tinubu: “Then, the financial system was rotten. Few people made bags of money and then you yourself, you stopped sending money home to our poor parents. Several windows. But that is gone now. It’s gone.
BraveViews recalls that, President Tinubu had in June 9 suspended Emefiele to allow for investigation into some allegations leveled against him, the former CBN Governor.
Subsequently, Emefiele was arrested in Lagos State and flown to the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja by the Department of State Services, where he is being interrogated.
