Popular Lagos Pastor and overseer of Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare has called for the probe of Central Bank of Nigeria Governor, Godwin Emefiele over the role the apex bank played in the release of alleged diverted $2.1 billion to ex-NSA, Sambo Dasuki from the coffers of the apex bank.
Bakare in a state of the nation address tagged ”Roadmap to successful change”, accused the CBN under Emefiele as being a conduit for politicians to drain the nation, adding that the CBN governor should not have remained in office while the former NSA was being probed.
He said: “To the discerning, the CBN currently contributes negatively to the Nigerian state in more ways than one. Firstly, the CBN has become a conduit for politicians to drain the nation.
“Otherwise, how can a letter of barely two paragraphs addressed to the current CBN Governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, by the then National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd.), become the Authority to Incur Expenditure (AIE) leading to cash flow of $47 million (US dollars) and several millions of euros?
“In decent climes, the CBN Governor cannot continue in office while the NSA is accounting for his alleged misdeeds.”
