23rd November 2020

A member of the United Kingdom parliament on Monday, November 23 claimed that former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon allegedly stole half of the funds in the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).


The parliamentarian made the allegation during the House deliberation on the aftermath of the EndSARS protest, and possible sanctions to be meted on top Nigerians regarding the roles they played in the killing of unarmed protesters.

He said, “What we are seeing in Nigeria today is part of that story. It is a tragedy we are all witnessing because we see things falling apart.

“The problem this time is not foreign pressure known as colonialism. The pressure instead is corruption and violence and attempts at control (of power).


“We need to call out the corruption, we need to use the powers that we have in this country to stop those who are profiting from the wealth of that great nation and hiding it here.

“Now some people will remember when general Gowon left Nigeria, he took half of the Central Bank, so it is said, and moved to London.

“We know today, even now in this great city of ours, there are sadly some people who have taken the wealth of Nigerian people and hidden their ill-gotten gains here.

“We know that our banks sadly have been used for that profit or that illegal transfer of asset and that means that the UK is in a unique position in being able to actually do something to really exert pressure on those who have robbed Nigerians.

General Gowon ruled Nigeria between 1966 to 1975. He led Nigeria to defeat Biafran soldiers who under the leadership of Odumegwu Ojukwu wanted to break away.

Nigeria is cursed and the curse goes thus... All those born pre Civil war must die for Nigeria to rise. A generation must die for the blood it has shed.

Can this be true?

Gowon will soon release a statement debunking this statement.

This is what you get when you failed to write a book detailing your reign as the president of a country.

Gowon didn't write a single book about his reign as Nigerian head of state. Imagine him keeping us in the dark of what transpired during the civil war. We only rely on third parties and his aids to read of what happened.

Gowon should write a book about the civil war and how he wasn't able to lay a solid foundation for Nigeria's economic and fiscal blueprint.
