The speaker described the actions of the CBN governor and his Bank Directors as a blatant disregard and an insult to the Nigerian people and the parliament.
The speaker says he will not hesitate to issue a warrant of arrest on the CBN and his officers in pursuant to Section 89 1D of the constitution of Nigeria and order 1921 of the standing orders of the House of Representatives to the IGP to compel the attendance of the CBN governor and or his executives should they fail to honour today's rescheduled invitation.
