A former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank, Obadiah Mailafia, has accused the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN has the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC of blackmailing him to join the party over an infraction that occurred in the bank 10 years ago.
Speaking to journalists during a meeting of stakeholders at the national secretariat of African Democratic Congress (ADC) in Abuja, said the said infraction happened in a department he was not a part of.
Mailafia said: “Just before the elections, there were pressures on me and I was even interrogated by security agencies over something that happened in the CBN about 10 years ago which was not even in my department.
“They blackmailed me that if I joined APC, I would be forgiven. I told them, why can’t they join me? I even asked them why can’t President Muhammadu Buhari come and join my party, ACD? What does he have that I don’t have more than him? Is it their analogue generation that will save Nigeria? Somebody that has never even used a computer. What have they to offer Nigeria again?”
Speaking on the P&ID court verdict, the presidential candidate of ADC in the 2019 election warned that if care was not taken, it would put Nigeria in a big mess.
