Northern Group Warns Tinubu Against Obazee's Report on CBN Investigation

Northern Group Warns Tinubu Against Obazee
Bola Ahmed Tinubu
A group of Northerners under the aegis of the Concerned Northern Forum have warned President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to desist from implementing the report of the Special Investigator of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Jim Obazee.

The group claimed that Obazee himself is covered with lace of corrupt allegations, and his alleged character of witch-hunt might have negatively impacted the report of his investigation.

The Northern group agreed that the CBN may need to be investigated but Obazee, who was accused of contract racketeering when he served as the Chief Executive Officer of the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria (FRC), may not be fit for the investigation.

The group further warned President Tinubu, in its statement signed by its Chairman, Aliyu Muhammed that implementing Obazee's report may incite chaos because he has no business investigating any financial institution in Nigeria.

Parts of the statement released by the group read, “This is so because Jim Obazee himself is not qualified to lead any special investigation, most especially one that has to do with finance given his antecedents.

“The man hired by President Tinubu is at the heart of scandals that involved siphoning and squandering of billions of naira while he was the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria (FRC), awarding and procurement of contracts to self-using proxies, racketeering, acquiring luxury properties worth billions both at home and abroad that his salary could never justify and also accused of sexual harassment.

“A known and tagged man of controversies, with so many dirty cuts on his character and financial records is not the man for such a job. Obazee’s professionalism, patriotism, and loyalty are all questioned, his priorities are his financial gains or the personal scores he set out to settle. Jim Obazee should be investigated and not the other way around.

“Unless the President is interested in his expertise of personal witch hunt and controversies that are capable of inciting chaos, Jim Obazee has no business investigating the CBN or any other financial institution for that matter. Mr President should heed to the action of firing Jim Obazee by his predecessor, former President Muhammadu Buhari who is known to despise and fight corruption.”
