House Of Reps Issues Arrest Warrant On CBN Governor, Cardoso



An arrest warrant has been issued by the house of representatives committee on public petition for the arrest on Olayemi Cardoso, governor, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

The warrant was issued following Cardoso’s refusal to appear before the committee to answer questions relating to the apex bank’s operations.

The committee also ordered the arrest of Oluwatoyin Madein, accountant general of the federation, and 17 others. The motion was led by Fred Agbedi, a member representing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),  Bayelsa on Tuesday.

According to Agbedi, the arrest warrant had become inevitable following the attitude of the invitees. He said parliament worked with time and the CEOs had been invited four times but failed to respond. The lawmaker added that the CEOs should be brought to appear before the committee by the Inspector General of Police through a warrant of arrest after due diligence by Tajudeen Abbas, speaker of the house.

Speaking on the issue, Micheal Irom, chairman of the committee and member representing All Progressives Congress (APC), Cross River, said that the IGP should ensure the CEOs were brought before the committee on December 14.
