Feb 22, 2014 – CBN Governor Sanusi’s Suspension: Emir Of Kano Blasts Jonathan

The Emir Of Kano Ado Bayero has spoken up over the sudden suspension of Mallam Sanusi Lamido, the now ex-Governor of the Central Bank Of Nigeria.

Alhaji Bayero condemns President Jonathan saying Sanusi’s suspension is an abuse of justice.

The Kano Emirate said Sanusi is under persecution for exposing the corruption that is going on in NNPC. Bayero warned Jonathan to treat all Nigerians with fairness and equality.

Here is an official letter signed by Bayero’s aide, Alhaji Tijjani Hashim

The letter titled“Suspension of CBN Governor: Abuse on the Rule of Law”, reads:

“As a law abiding organization, we believe that adherence to the rule of law is paramount and important to any government, more importantly a democratically elected government, which preaches total adherence to the rule of law.

“As the President has suspended the Governor without the recourse to the rule of law, we believed it was a deliberate attempt to witch-hunt him and desperation and impunity at the highest order by the Federal Government.

“We and many see the President’s action as a deliberate witch-hunt of the Governor for doing his job by letting Nigerians know the alleged fraud going on in the petroleum industry and to divert people’s attention from this monumental fraud.

“Despite all the awards and commendations the Governor received nationally and internationally, which Nigerians and even the President are proud of, the significant positive changes to the economy, confidence in depositor’s money and dynamic banking reforms, but it’s unfortunate the Governor will be paid back this way.”

    President Jonathan’s decision to suspend CBN Governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi yesterday Feb. 20th was based on a report of the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria, FRCR dated June 7, 2013. In the report, FRCR ripped apart the 2012 audited financial statement of CBN and exposed what it termed as ‘fraud’, ‘clear display of incompetence’,and ‘excesses and wastefulness of Sanusi and the CBN.’

    The 13-page report claimed a whooping N1.257 billion was spent for ‘lunch for policemen’. There were also bogus payments to airlines to distribute currency nationwide. The FRCR also claimed CBN has held an account with a balance of N1.423b for an unknown customer since 2008. The report had recommended the sack of Sanusi and his deputy

    Sorry, Emir. Can’t you reinstate Sanusi as CBN Gov? Remember, he is your son.

    Emir please be objective. Did you read the report from the auditors that indicted your Sanusi? This is the same way you cursed out Obasanjo when he tried to arrest Abacha’s son for the billions him and his thieving family stole fron Nigeria and stashed away in Switzerland and other places. Emir, Nigeria does not belong to you and Kano state alone. It belongs to all of us. Why did Sanusi stashe money away in Islamic bank? is it in your agenda to make Nigeria an Islamic state? for your information, Nigeria is a sercular state.

    This is why we say Jonathan is weak. Why did the govt wait until he started accusing nnpc? The world is watching. If what you say is true and you have evidence as the report claimes then tell us why he is not arrested ,detained and prosecuted. No more story,story.obasanjo would have done this immediately. Emir bayero’s statement is unfortunate. Has he read the full report of the financial council? he is too quick to react or was he given part of the alleged loot? Efcc where are you? That madam should loose her office. She has failed the nation since she took office.
