BREAKING: We are proud to say that if for about nine years as CBN governor, the only misdemeanor found in our brother is forgery – According to ASF

The Agbor Stakeholders Forum, a Delta State-based organization, reportedly protects the name of Godwin Emefiele, the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, who is suspected of faking the president’s signature during the 2023 elections, according to a Vanguard article. He challenges individuals who have accused Emefiele of malfeasance to present proof of their claims, and he wonders why a dishonest CBN governor would need to turn to forgery to obtain funds.

He said, “We are proud to say that if for about nine years as CBN governor, the only misdemeanor found in our brother is forgery of the president’s signature during the 2023 elections, then Emefiele must be a saint indeed. Does a corrupt CBN governor need to forge any signatures to covet millions of dollars over nine years? But no such monies have been found on him or his immediate family and friends. The sum in question ($ 6.2 million) was never traced to his account nor was he in charge of elections monitoring. So who got the money?

They sing about N23 trillion ‘ways and means’ funds created by Emefiele and we challenge them to tell Nigerians how much loans and ‘ways and means’ funds they have procured in just nine months.”
