JUST IN: Buhari Meets With Emefiele At The State House

Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) is currently meeting with Central Bank Governor Godwin Emefiele at the State House in Abuja.

Emefiele is meeting with the President for the second time since “secretly” returning to the country on January 12, 2022.

Earlier in the day, the embattled CBN governor was part of an Arab Bank for Economic Development mission led by its Director General, Dr Sidi Ould Tah.

Emefiele had fled the nation following the conclusion of an investigation into many claims against him, including corruption and terrorism financing.
The DSS had sought a court warrant to arrest him weeks before. However, the request was denied by the Federal High Court in Abuja.

The DSS asked the court to order the arrest of the CBN governor over alleged “acts of financing terrorism, fraudulent activities and economic crimes of national security dimension.”

On October 20, 2022, Justice Inyang Ekwo sitting in the Federal High Court in Abuja summoned Emefiele over the $53m judgment debt arising from the Paris Club refund.

The court ordered him to appear on Wednesday, January 18, 2023, as the hearing date.

However, Emefiele filed an appeal against the FHC ruling saying that Justice Ekwo erred in law and occasioned a miscarriage of justice when he made an order compelling his attendance in court for the $53 million debt.

Wednesday’s proceedings could not go on as planned when the matter was called, making the court to adjourn the case till March 20, 2023.
