Bayo Onanuga, Special Adviser on Information and Strategy to President Tinubu, said that Nigeria is a good country otherwise the erred former CBN governor would have faced firing squad because he committed treason. If it were China there would be no mercy and the ex-CBN boss would be executed.

Onanuga said this as his take on the report submitted by CBN special investigator, Jim Obaze who discovered a lot of dirty deals by Emefiele while he was governor.

The report said Emefiele was keeping £543.4 million in fixed deposit; he has operated 593 foreign bank accounts in US, UK and China. And during election, he withdrew $6.23 million from CBN vaults under purported approval of President Muhammad Buhari to pay foreign observers.

Shehu Sani spots loopholes in Obaze report on Emefiele

Former Senator Shehu Sani has reacted to the CBN Special Investigator Jim Obaze’s report on former governor of the apex bank.

While Sani applauded the findings, he pointed that the report did not mention Emefiele’s “accomplices and collaborators” as there must be people whom he (Emefiele) worked with.

Sani’s observation obviously confirms the suppressed popular opinion that while Emefiele may have done wrong, that Obaze’s report left a lot to be desired.

Emefiele: Shehu Sani exposes FG, says what CBN investigator is hiding

Former senator Shehu Sani is demanding that names of former CBN governor Emefiele be released in Jim Obaze report

• Isn’t government a big scam? Emefiele saga is exposing more than earlier anticipated

• Shehu Sani’s new revelation about CBN investigator’s report sets the nation on fire

But the senator pointed out strange loopholes in the report.

The Mail reported that CBN private investigator has submitted to President Bola Tinubu a damning report that shows that the infamous maria redesign policy was a national scam.

The report completely exonerated former President Muhammad Buhari, added that Emefiele and Buhari’s nephew and aide, Sabui Tunde, operated the redesign policy with Buhari’s approval.

Taking to his X account, Shehu Sani questions why Obaze’s report conspicuously omitted names of all Emefiele accomplices.

“The CBN Private investigator did a good job so far. The only thing missing in the damning report circulating is the names of other collaborators or accomplices,” Shehu said.

Nigerians demand names of Emefiele accomplices

Following the Shehu’s revelation, Nigerians have seized social media to demand that names of Emefiele accomplices be released alongside the embattled CBN governor’s

@Freelancer_Ib: “Yes collaborators or accomplices needs to be unveiled he can’t be the only one involved.”

@ay_sadiq: “He’s taking the heat all alone, common sense can tell that he won’t execute all by himself. Look forward to the list of his accomplice”

@See_Emmy: “Hence, that is not a good job if the investigators are shielding the collaborators or accomplices. I ask again why are @officialEFCC and @icpcnigeria being retained in Nigeria?”

@masudsuleiman01: “The former CBN governor shouldn’t be made a scapegoat; hence, other collaborators should be brought to book.”
