AFTER DSS ARREST DRAMA Welcome Back, Mr Governor, President Muhammadu Buhari Tells Emefiele
President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday welcomed the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, during a meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The meeting was the second between the president and the CBN governor yesterday. Emefiele had been part of the earlier audience granted the Arab Bank for Economic Development team by the president in the Villa.
According to Channels Television, Buhari while receiving him, said, “You are welcome back.”
The CBN boss, however, did not speak with journalists after the meeting but there were speculations that he may have briefed the president on the withdrawal of the old currency and replacement with new naira notes.
Emefiele, who returned to the country on 12th January, 2023, after spending his annual leave abroad, had been in the news over corruption and involvement in terrorism financing allegations, with series of attempts made by security officials to arrest him.
