At the FCT High Court former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele has been granted bail worth N300 million on Wednesday after being charged with the unlawful redesign of the naira notes.

Emefiele allegedly approved printing N684.5 million at a rate of N18.96 billion and also authorized the withdrawal of N124.8 billion from the Consolidated Revenue Fund of the Federation without proper authorization.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) accused Emefiele of disobeying legal directions during the implementation of the naira swap policy under former President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

They claimed he proceeded with the naira redesign without the necessary approvals from the CBN Board and President Buhari.
