Soludo Visits Aso Rock

SoludoFormer Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo, was on Monday evening sighted at the Aso Rock Villa in Abuja

He was seen by journalists signing the visitors book on his way to the office of the Chief of Staff to the President, ‎Alhaji Abba Kyari.

Soludo, who wore a cream- coloured kaftan, entered the Chief of Staff’s office around 5:30pm.
Although it could not be established if he met President Muhammadu Buhari, his visit came at a time the President was concluding work on the list of ministerial nominees he will send to the National Assembly before the end of this month.

This is despite the fact that ‎Soludo, who served as CBN governor under the administrations of Olusegun Obasanjo and Umar Yar’Adua, on June 7 declared in an interview with online news platform (Premium Times) that he was not ready to work for Buhari’s government.

Soludo had been quite critical of the financial management of the economy by the Goodluck Jonathan administration, accusing it of supervising the leakage of. N30 trillion from the system.
In his interview with Premium Times, Soludo said‎: “Nigerians and their rumours! I am glad you said they are rumours and such rumours are normal. For sure, I wish the new government success and for the sake of Nigeria, everyone must contribute to assist President Buhari to succeed. I will contribute in whatever way I can.

However, everyone can’t sit in government in order to serve: some will be there on full time basis while others can contribute from outside. For me personally and at this point in time, I am not disposed or available for full time public service now; perhaps in the future it could happen, but not now. For now, my hands are full with several other experiments I am involved with (especially abroad) in the private sector, charity, think-tanks, and the international community.”
