Previous Head of State, Yakubu Gowon, has censured the charge of plundering portion of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, by a British Parliamentarian.
Review that a UK administrator, Tom Tugendhat, accussed the previous Head of State during a discussion on the Lekki tollbooth shootings of nonconformists.
Gowon while talking on Channels TV noticed that he is disillusioned with the assertion of the administrator, he charged Tungendhat to check his records during and after he filled in as Head of State.
“It is absolutely astonishing, and I am baffled that a British parliamentarian could offer such an expression without checking current realities of what he was stating,” Gowon said.
“I really was disillusioned that such a comment is made. The record of my support of the country is there for anyone to view and even the British government itself, and I don’t have the foggiest idea how someone got the data to offer quite an absurd expression,” he said.
Gowon approached the British government to research the charge and carry the official to arrange, to check his realities before he makes such claim.
Gowon considers the to be as pretty much an affront to the “initiative of Nigeria and absolutely an affront to me to state that I accomplished something of the sort to take half of Nigeria’s Central Bank and I probably put it in a British bank.”
“In this way, he should check all the British banks to see whether any such thing has occurred, and he (the UK administrator) will be shocked that I was not being held for illegal tax avoidance,” he added.
