Show Your Teeth And Suspend Sanusi Immediately – Ezeife To Jonathan


Former Governor of Anambra state Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife yesterday urged President Goodluck Jonathan to immediately suspend the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria CBN, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi over the false alarm he raised concerning the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation NNPC’s alleged non-remittance of $49.8 billion into the federation account.

Ezeife made the call yesterday while speaking to Saturday Vanguard in Abuja. He said:
"I am surprised. I didn’t know that the report of the CBN indicating that a whopping sum of $49.8 billion was missing from the federation account was false. That gives the impression that the CBN Governor is working against the government he is serving. He tried to make President Jonathan look bad in the eye of the public. The money involved was so huge that to lie about it is a serious affair."
According to him, Sanusi should be suspended immediately after making such bold but untrue statements.
The official continued with his attack:
"I read the second statement made by the CBN about the alleged missing billions of dollars but there was no mention of the fact that the Governor’s earlier claim was a mistake. That kind of mistake is impossible. It was a deliberate action to impugn the President and his government."
Ezeife claimed that Jonathan should exercise his powers and "show his teeth and perhaps bite."
"Even though Sanusi insisted that $10 billion of the sum NNPC ought to have paid into the federation account is still missing, the difference between approximately $50 billion and $10 billion is like the difference between night and day."
