A leaked memo seen by NewsOnline Nigeria has implicated the acting Governor of the CBN, Folashodun Adebisi Shonubi, as the architect of the controversial Naira redesign policy of the apex bank during the regime of former President Muhammadu Buhari.
Information in the leaked memo reveals that the acting CBN Governor worked hand-in-hand with Godwin Emefiele the disgraced former governor of the apex.
The internal memo, which was titled: “Memorandum to the Committee of Governors for Currency Redesign.” Contains vital information nailing Folashodun Shonubi in the controversial policy that kept the country on its feet prior to the 2023 presidential election.
