Jim Osayande Obazee, who was fired in 2017 by President Muhammadu Buhari for multiple allegations of corruption, abuse of office, federal racketeering and convicted of sexual harassment is an appointee of President Tinubu.
In 2013, he was accused of sexually abusing a federal official, Abimbola Patricia Yakubu, and she sued the Financial Reporting Council, which Mr Obazee was the executive secretary, for wrongful termination and covering up sexual assault by its leadership.
Obazee, the new Special CBN Investigator, has been given the mandate by President Tinubu to uncover vast corruption at the nation’s main banker and other institutions accused of public graft.
He proposed a bill in 2016, to not-for-profit organisations, including churches and mosques, to comply with the corporate governance code stipulating a term of 20 years for heads of such entities.
This in turn made the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E.A Adeboye, resign at the time, but two days after Adeboye stepped down, Former President Buhari sacked Obazee and approved the reconstitution of the board.
The CBN investigator is saddled with the responsibility to ensure the strengthening and probity of key Government Business Entities (GBEs), and to further block leakages in CBN and related sector.
