Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, according to Sahara Reporters has hurriedly left the United States after being tongue-lashed publicly by President Muhammadu Buhari.
S.R. says Mr. Emefiele asked to see President Buhari and then requested to leave for an “important” meeting in London – which the president granted.
On Monday, President Buhari had warned his aides against smuggling Nigerian businessmen into meetings during his visit.
Later that evening, he openly admonished the CBN governor for smuggling the former Managing Director of Zenith bank, Jim Ovia, into a dinner organized by the US Chamber of Commerce.
The CBN governor’s request to leave Washington DC came as a surprise, as he had not previously informed President Buhari of any other meeting he had to attend, especially one that would deprive the President of a prominent member of his delegation.
