Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, on Tuesday finally appeared before the House of Representatives Committee, investigating the Naira swap exercise.
The Committee and delegation of the CBN are currently meeting at the National Assembly.
The meeting commenced around 12:05 pm after over one-hour behind closed doors.
At the commencement of the meeting, the Chairman of the Committee, Ado Doguwa said the CBN boss provided reasons for missing previous invitations.
It would be recalled that several threats of arrest were issued by the House and the Committee on Thursday after Mr Emefiele shunned the House.
The CBN boss had announced an extension of the deadline for the new currency swap till 10th February. However, the committee has insisted that Emefiele must appear before them.
Kogi State House of Assembly has recalled four suspended members.
Speaker of the house, Rt. Hon. Mathew Kolawole announced the lifting of the suspension on Tuesday during the house sitting in Lokoja.
Kolawole said the suspension of the members is not the wish of any members in the house, adding that the seventh Assembly is gradually coming to an end hence the need for peace and harmony among members in the state.
Reading the findings of the house committee on ethics and privileges, the chairman, who doubles as the Chief Whip, Hon. Ahmed Dahiru, said the suspended members were remorseful for their actions and should be recalled to perform legislative duties.
The lawmakers who were recalled are; Rt Hon. Ahmed Mohammed, former Deputy Speaker; Hon. Bello Hassan Abdullahi Balogun, former majority leader; Hon. Idris Ndakwo, Lokoja II; and Hon. Moses Ododo, former Deputy Chief whip.
The four lawmakers were suspended in June 2022 for alleged gross misconduct, which was investigated by the house committee on ethics and privileges.
