You are such a disgrace, Dont rubbish your image! – Nigerian Youths blast Akinwunmi Adesina for defending Yakubu Gowon over corruption allegation in the UK! (See tweets) 👇

Recently, one of the Members of the UK Parliament alleged that former Nigerian Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon stole about half of the CBN and brought the assets to London.

The Member of Parliament made this allegation while the house were discussing some of the outcomes of the ENDSARS protest and LekkiMassacre incident.

However, former Minister of Agriculture and the incumbent President of the African Development Bank, Mr Akinwunmi Adesina put out a tweet in the defence of the former military President.

He said;

“Be careful of misinformation! H.E. General Yakubu Gowon, Nigeria’s former Head of State, is a man of great honour, decency, honesty, amazing simplicity, humility and integrity. I know him. A great and admirable elder statesman of Nigeria. His honesty and integrity are impeccable.”

Nigerians on Twitter, especially the youths took turns in tongue-lashing the former minister in reaction to his defence of Yakubu Gowon.
