During its plenary session on Wednesday, Chairman of the Committee, Rafiu Ibrahim, said the recent allegations against Emefiele were to bring him down.

He expressed satisfaction with Emefiele who was undergoing screening from the committee.

“I do not have any question for the Governor. I am overwhelmed. I wish you well and pray for you. May God continue to guide you,” he said.

“Now, we know the reason why there are some videos on social media because in Nigeria, once you are a good person, some people will always try to bring you down.

“We will expeditiously take a report to the chamber for consideration. You can take a bow.”

Also speaking, Kurfi Umaru, from Katsina Central lauded the CBN governor for “a job well done.”

“Let me start by congratulating the governor for his second term and also congratulate you for your article presentation. I commend you for a job well done.”
