Conference of Nigerian Political Parties, CNPP, has picked holes on the suspension of the Central Bank of Nigeria Governor, Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, describing it as a selective witch- hunt
Reacting to the development Thursday via a press statement issued by its publicity secretary Mr. Osita Okechukwu, made available to newsmen in Enugu, the group noted that “whereas, it cannot fault the powers of President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR to suspend any official of the Federal Government However “we rate the suspension of Governor Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as selective witch-hunt and one done strictly in bad faith.
The statement read in parts: “For the avoidance of doubt, for a long time tongues have been wagging on the way and manner Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi had converted the CBN into a charity organization; but Mr President did not take special notice nor was deeply concerned until Malam Sanusi opened the Pandorax-Box in what we may term the cash-cow – Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC”.
“CNPP like most patriots will celebrate the day President Jonathan suspends those whom Malam Sanusi had clearly exposed for allegedly squandering billions of United States Dollars, USD, of Crude Oil revenue without due process, lack of transparency and most importantly utter disregard to appropriation by the National Assembly.
“Until then, we regard the suspension of the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, as selective witch-hunt and suspension done in bad faith”, CNPP insisted.
