The Concerned Northern Forum has cautioned President Bola Tinubu over the use of the report submitted by Jim Obazee, the Special Investigator to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Jim Obazee.

President Tinubu had, on July 28, appointed a former Chief Executive Officer of the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria, Obazee, as Special Investigator to probe the activities of the apex bank under its former governor, Godwin Emefiele.

The special investigator indicted the board and management of the CBN on several fronts in the recommendations submitted to the president.

Weighing in, the forum in a statement by Aliyu Muhammad, its Chairman, said: “The President must tread with a high level of caution here, because he might be blind folded and walking in a field, full of buried landmines.

“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.

“Unless the President is interested in his expertise of personal witch hunts 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.”

Muhammad, therefore urged Tinubu not to use the report, saying: “It is one sided, partial and some of its recommendations are fatal to the economic wellbeing of Nigeria.”
