Akpabio opens up on confusion Emefiele created

On Sunday, February 18, Akpabio disclosed that the Tinubu administration did not know the crime to charge Emefiele with.

He said the economy was in a mess when the new government came in because of the shortcomings of the former CBN governor.

According to a video by The Punch in a tweet, the Senate president made the revelation at a thanksgiving service organised by senator Barinada Mpigi in Koroma, Tai local government area of Rivers state.

His statement reads in part:

"By the time we went in to look at the economic situation of the country, it was terrible. You know that the former governor of the Central Bank. We did not even know what to charge him with. Whether to charge him for putting foam on top of the bill or to charge him for illegal possession of firearms or to charge him for printing notes without income. I don’t know what we are going to charge him with."
