Jim Obazee, a former Chief Executive Officer of the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria, has reacted to accusations of financial impropriety.

Recall that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu had on July 28 appointed Obazee as a special investigator to probe the Central Bank of Nigeria and related entities.

Speaking at a press conferenceon Thursday, Obazee’s lawyer, Anayo Mbah, who described the financial impropriety reports as “outrageous falsehood,” said the malicious campaign was meant to abuse the minds of the people against his client.

Mbah said, “We challenge the peddlers of the false and malicious statements to produce the petition(s) and criminal charge(s) filed against Mr. Obazee, as well as the judgment(s) of the court convicting or sentencing him for any such criminal offences.

“We state categorically that what Mr. Obazee is aware of is a purely employment-related civil suit filed at the National Industrial Court by one of the employees of the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria for wrongful termination and other claims against FRCN, and wherein Mr. Obazee was joined as a party as the Chief Executive Officer. Judgment was given in the case, and FRCN and Mr. Obazee have since appealed against the decision of the National Industrial Court. There was never a criminal charge or conviction of Mr. Obazee in any court in Nigeria. The news is totally malicious and false.”
