Nigeria In One Minute

FG to probe Sanusi, Soludo



The Federal Government is considering probing the tenures of two former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governors, Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo and Alhaji Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.

The probe would specifically cover the activities of the CBN between 2007 and 2014.

According to a top Presidency source, the probe, which was yet to be finally approved by President Muhammadu Buhari, would focus on the printing of naira notes under the authorisation of Soludo and the management of CBN’s “surplus” finances under Sanusi, who is now Emir of Kano.

According to the source, government believed that the handling of projects and policies by the two ex-CBN governors had issues that needed clarification.

Sanusi recently cautioned the incumbent administration not to engage in acts that would make it end like the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan. He criticised the FOREX policy of the government, which, he argued had enabled some people to make huge money without any investment.

Soludo on the other hand had also faulted some economic policies of the government recently.
