Abuja - A former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has alleged that over N30tn had been stolen under the watch of the Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.
Soludo, in a response to Okonjo-Iweala said the nation was in for a very turbulent time this year because the economy had been grossly mismanaged.
The Federal Government had last Wednesday described the five-year tenure of Soludo as the governor of the CBN between 2004 and 2009 as a disaster to the banking sector.

The comment came on the heels of an earlier article by Soludo last Monday in which he claimed that the Nigerian economy under Jonathan had performed woefully.
Okonjo-Iweala had in a statement on Wednesday described Soludo’s as an “embittered loser in the Nigerian political space.”
