Central Bank of Nigeria is created to promote stability and continuity in economic management of Nigeria, among other things. The minimum authorised capital of the bank is One Hundred Billion Naira. The capital are all subscribed and held by only the Federal Government. Hence, the Federal Government of is the only shareholder of Central Bank of Nigeria. So, no individual, company, bank, foreign agency, state, state government or local government is permitted to be a shareholder of the Central Bank of Nigeria.

My authorities are sections 4, 60 and 61 of the Central Band of Nigeria Act, 2007.

“No Bank In Nigeria Can Unilaterally Change /Vary Interest Rate In Its Agreement With A Customer”.
 
Where there is an agreement between a bank and its customer showing agreed interest rate but without an option for variation of such Interest, such bank cannot vary/change the interest rate. It does not matter whether or not there is a new interest rate from Central Bank of Nigeria.
 
My authority is the Supreme Court’s decision in the case of UBN PLC v. AJABULE & ANOR (2011) LPELR-8239(SC).

(Tip 123)
“A Lawyer’s Bank Account is Exempted from EFCC, SCUML, NFIU and Police Registration/Clearance.”

Most ignorant banks will request that a lawyer obtains a proof of registration with Special Control Unit Against Money Laundering (SCUML) before a law firm’s bank account can be created; this is to enable EFCC and other agencies monitor such accounts easily.

This is wrong and illegal. Special Control Unit Against Money Laundering(SCUML), the National Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU), the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have no right to demand registration and seek regulation of lawyers, their law practice and management of clients accounts.

Don’t let any bank or security agency muscle you into illegality. Enjoy your lawyers privileges!

See sections of 192 and 195 of Evidence Act, sections 5 and 25 of Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act, Rule 19(1) of the Rules of Professional Conduct for Legal Practitioners 2007 and the Federal High Court decision on Registered Trustees of Nigerian Bar Association V. AGF & CBN (Suit No: FHC/BS/173/2014) And the Court of Appeal decision in the case of CBN V. NBA & AGF (Appeal No: CA/A/202/2015)
