Two weeks after the suspension and the arrest of former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, President Bola Tinubu has finally spoken on the issue, describing the financial system under Emefiele as rotten.
Emefiele was picked up from his home in Lagos and flown to Abuja guarded by a detachment of security operatives.
He was then driven to the headquarters of the State Security Service (SS), also known as the Department of State Service (DSS) in the Asokoro District of the nation’s capital.
He has been in detention since, undergoing interrogation. Tinubu spoke during an interactive session with Nigerians in diaspora resident in France and neighbouring countries, on the side-lines of the two-day financing climate pact summit which ended in France.
