‘Emefiele would face firing squad if …’ – Bayo Onanuga

The Presidency has said the immediate past Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Godwin Emefiele, would have faced a firing squad if he was from China.

President Bola Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga, said Emefiele and his gangs committed egregious misappropriation that would not be allowed in China.

Onanuga was reacting to the Special Investigation on CBN and Related Entities, Chargeable Offences report.

Jim Obazee’s report indicted Emefiele of misappropriating funds while he was CBN governor.

The report claimed that the former CBN governor opened bank accounts without the approval of the apex bank’s Board of Directors and Investment Committee.

According to the report, Emefiele illegally lodged billions of naira in about 593 bank accounts in the United States, United Kingdom, and China.

Obazee disclosed that Emefiele deposited £543,482,213 in fixed deposits in UK banks alone without authorisation

Posting on X, Onanuga wrote: “If Godwin Emefiele and his gang had committed these egregious misappropriations in China, they will by now be facing the firing squad for high treason.”

  1. It was not in China, that's why a Certificate forger, who was indicted and paid a fine of $460,000 for Drug case in Chicago, could be President.

  2. Bayo want to trend. Start from your principal to your very self. You are working under a man who is the richest politician in Africa with NO company or business to his name and you have the audacity to call another corrupt. What a country

  3. Bunch of thieves calling a fellow thief.
    If Nigeria is working, you people wouldn't have been there in the first place. Broad day robbers of democracy 🤦

  4. Wait wait, is this a joke? No Nigerian politician is suppose to say that to the former cbn governor. I didn't support anything he did while in office. But there's no way a pot be calling another black.
