Feb 22, 2014 – EXPOSED! Sanusi Stole Billions From CBN Account Before Suspension ; FRC Audit Exposes Fraud & Funds Diversion

When the Financial Reporting Council Report was sent to Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi on June 25, 2013, he’s fully aware that the game is over.

He allegedly brewed up his NNPC allegations to divert Nigerians attention from him by writing the president on September 27, 2013.

He succeeded in deceiving some, but his frauds can NEVER be covered.

Here are few of his fraudulent activities exposed by FRC audit
1] He donated N1b to BUK, Kano and wrote that he donated N4 million.
2] He wrote N40b debt of a bank without documentation and authority.
3] He invested $Billions in Malaysia Islamic Bank with no return on Investment to Nigeria.
4] He awarded 63 contracts valued over N1b each, without approval
5] He spent N1.257b for Lunch for his Police and Private Guards in a year.
6] He donated N1billion to a political party to build offices Nationwide.
7] He spent N4.5b to renovates his personal home without approval.
8] He spent N4billion on a CBN PH branch building that was already completed.
9] He wrote N2b Bogus checks to Airlines (some not registered in Nigeria) to distribute currency.
10) Claimed paying Nigerian Security Printing & Minting in 2011 N38.233b for the “printing of bank notes”. Company’s turnover in 2011 is only group is N29.370b from all customers including CBN.
11) Associated Airline was paid N1.025b in 2011, while the company was Dormant in the same year. (No Operation).

Operated Bogus Expense Heads To Hide Fraudulent Activities

… CBN Has Held An Account With A Balance Of N1.423 Billion For An Unknown Customer Since 2008.

Following Thursday’s suspension of Mr. Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as Governor of the Central Bank by President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, THEWILL has exclusively obtained a copy of the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria report that ripped apart the 2012 audited financial statement of the apex bank and exposed the fraud, excesses and wastefulness of Sanusi and the CBN.

Sanusi had over the years projected an image of an anti-graft banker, activist, reformer and crusader against graft and waste in government, as well as the financial sector. Weeks before his ouster as CBN Governor, Mr. Sanusi had accused the NNPC of failing to remit billions of dollars in oil revenue to the federation account, a claim which the NNPC has continued to dispute.

The 13-page Council report emanated following Sanusi’s response to a query issued him in early 2013 by President Goodluck Jonathan over the apex bank’s alarming reckless donations nationwide and its finances.

Whilst describing Sanusi’s response to the President’s query as “a clear display of incompetence, nonchalance, fraud, wastefulness, abuse of due process and deliberate efforts to misrepresent facts…”, the Council accused the suspended banker of several violations including but not limited to carrying out activities with financial implications that are not related to the CBN’s mandate, especially billions of naira in ambiguous payments to invoices referred to as “Centre of Excellence” and “Contribution to Internal National Security”, and the CBN’s claim that it paid N38.233 billion to the Nigerian Security Printing and Minting Company Plc in 2011 for the “printing of bank notes” whereas the turnover of the entire printing and minting company group is N29.370 billion.

The Council also accused Sanusi of rogue payments as air charter fees to Emirates Airways (N0.511b), Associated Airline (N1.025b) and Wing Airline (N0.425b), for the distribution of currency nationwide whereas Emirates does not operate local charter flights within Nigeria, Wing Air is unregistered in Nigeria with the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), and Associated Airlines did not have a billion naira turnover in 2011 and have no financial statements because the company said it had not had any significant operation in two years to warrant preparing a financial statement.

In lieu of the serious misconduct it found against Sanusi and the leadership of the CBN, the Council urged the President to exercise the powers conferred on him by “Section 11 (2) (f) of the Central Bank of Nigeria Act, 2007 or invoke Section 11 (2) (c) of the said Act and cause the Governor and the Deputy Governors to cease from holding office in the CBN and also direct the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria to carry out a full investigation of the activities of the CBN…”

      They will not do him anything,or maybe they will ask him to pay fine of N750,000 which he will bring out from his breast pocket. How I which am not from this country. Imagine money for police launch of which a corpral in the Nigeria police is collecting N46,750 per month,the money that is not up to what your dog is using to visit vetinary doctor per week. Then why are you people saying police are corrupt and they are thief,can somebody tell me who is a thief now. Haba this is a clear matter. Then why are u people punishing people that stole blackberry phone by sending them to 25years imprisonment. We Nigerians don’t deserve this humiliation,at least give us little of this of this our country wealth before we die. Pay us good salary,do our roads,let us have stable light,good health care. As am typing,am sheding tears,I don’t know what to say again. Am all tears,upon all my stress this useless mallam and his cohorts are eating billions of naira everyday na ogun go kill you,thief

    This is the mother of all robbery; pen and gun included. Sanusi thought he is smart by shouting corruption without knowing he is the one behind it. Nigerians really need some explanation on transactions including donations he made while in office.

    I cannot but cry for my beloved nation. People in high position of authority do things without fear or consequence of their action. Let us imagine a country where if you hold public office and you misappropriate with clear evidence and you face a firing squad no one will still blatantly like this idiots are right now. But all of them are on the same boat stealing billions and no one to check them. It is a cancer that will continue until real uprising of the poor masses will arise and we shall have a real dialogue of how young, vibrant and dynamic people will take charge of the affairs of this nation.

    We are not going to run away from our country but the time is very near when the looters will face the wrath of the masses. They may have guns but the people have guts. Lessons from Irag, Egypt and other places should be a warning sign of things to come. How on earth will someone be spending without anyone checking his authority of doing so. And before Lamido’s supporters start to shout foul play can the governor publish publicly his expenses and records of his entire running cost while he held the position? If he can then he will receive the backing of the whole Nigerians as a true and honest man he his trying to portray himself to be and if not he should face jail for misconduct and massive misappropriation. What a nation where anything and everything goes. The future of our unborn child in this nation is definitely unknown.

    Sanusi is a mediocre banker that was only put in that position because he is from the North. Their purpose of putting him there was to put all Nigerias money in the so called Islamic bank. Imagine the emir of Kano coming to his defence simply because he is from Kano like him. It was the same Emir that cursed out Obasanjo when the latter wanted to arrest Abacha’s son over the billions of dollars him and his thieving family stole from Nigeria. This Emir should hide his face in shame.This has shown that Nigeria is not one and will never be one. This is why they want to be president at all cost so that they will continue to steal Nigeria blind. The south should wake up and smell the coffee. Amaechi and all those Southerners supporting Buhari of the so called APC are fools. The Northerners and Buhari have an Islamic agenda. They want to turn Nigeria from a secular state to an Islamic state. This will hasten the total colapse of the country.

    This man should be well investigated. I have a feeling he is the man sponsoring boko haram. Since his islamic banking idea has crashed he is now trying to divide nigeria with boko haram so that buhari can finaly be the president of their islamic sucking nation and he will be the vice. GODFORBID, ONE NIGERIA, ZERO CURRUPTION

    It is only those unacquitted with public service would consider those issues enumerate as corruption because Sanusi did not and cannot sit down in his leaving room or office to carry those things out like investment in another country. CBN has a Governing Board with full accountability and it is not constituted by Sanusi alone. Financial Reporting Council is an unknown arms of Government. Technically the CBN auditor or Auditor General of the Federation, if directed by the National Assembly are more appropriate. cBN has an enabling law guiding its operation and therefore only illiterates Nigerians will believe so called FRC. Remember Dr. Okigbo report on 11 billion dollars during IBB? If you look at that report and this FRC report, are similar done to tanish names but really to tell the truth. Sanusi fortunately did not divert the funds into his pocket. Items of expenditure are enumerated and recipients mentioned. Any rational mind who wants the truth which very expensive to come by in the current era of the Nigerian history, can undertake independent auditing to find the truth. Suspension cannot hide the truth.

    I foresaw all these financial misconduct allegations against the person of mallam sanusi . The question is “who is the bigger thief ? ” . No doubt that GEJ is very corrupt , sanusi should have known that equity demands clean hands .

    nigeria need a revolution, let all hit the streets, we want a law to be pass that any public office holder, state government, senate, vice prez , councillor , minister, accounting officer for gov, and other , anyone found gulity should be sentenced to dead by hanging
    with this law , a lot of corruption will reduce and if in case of president , he should be impeached and jailed.
    nigerian need to change and it is now, or else by few years to come, half the country will become armed robbers

    It is unfortunate that a fabricated allegation against Sanusi Lamido Sanusi could provide a justification for a generalised attack on so-called “northern pricks”. It is highly irresponsible for anyone to attribute the crime of an individual to an entire region. So when the former Minister of Aviation,Stella Oduah, was alleged to have been involved in shady deals;did it mean that East or igbos were all culpable? Again, the Petroleum Minister,Allison Diezani has been repeatedly accused of corruption;does it mean that all Bayelsans are now all bad? NO! there are good northerners,there are bad northerners. There are good Yorubas and Igbos as well as bad Yorunbas and Igbos. And above all, there are good Nigerians and there are Bad Nigerians.
    Let us please restrain our anger and condemnation only to the individuals and persons being accused of wrong doings. It should not be a justification for people to disparage an entire region or tribe.
