President Tinubu will soon release CBN audit report – SGF assures


The federal government says it will soon unveil the audit report of the Central Bank of Nigeria probe to the public.

George Akume, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, disclosed this on Monday at a pressing briefing for the 63rd anniversary of Nigeria.

He noted that the audit report of CBN will reveal how past governments had brought the country to its current economic predicament.

According to him, the report will enable Nigerians to know what went wrong and how the country got to its present situation.

He reiterated that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration had started well by making sound economic decisions to address the country’s challenges.

“When President Bola Tinubu came on board, he made a very sound decision at the CBN.

That singular act led to a massive improvement in the capital market; as experts have told us, it has never happened in the past 15 years.

“We have a new team at the CBN, and a special investigator has been in the CBN for some time now.

And his result will soon be released, and Nigerians will know what went wrong and what brought us to where we are today,”

He spoke.

NAIJAHITZ recalls that on July 28, President Tinubu appointed Jim Obazee, a special investigator, to probe CBN.

The President had also suspended Godwin Emefiele as governor of CBN in June.

Since then, Emefiele has been under the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.
