Probing Sanusi, Soludo not Buhari’s priority for now, Presidency notes

Buhari vows never to allow Referendum for Biafra
President Muhammadu Buhari has no intention to probe the Emir of Kano State, Lamido Muhammadu Sanusi and Professor Charles Soludo, the presidency has said.
Reports in some media platforms indicated that the two former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor, may face probe as government is preparing to probe the activities of CBN between 2007 and 2014, the period they held sway as the apex bank boss.
The reports had claimed that a top presidency source, revealed that 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.
The report came, just a few days after Sanusi cautioned that President Muhammadu Buhari led administration may fail like the preceding government if it fails to review some of its policies and make amendments and after Prof Soludo took the present administration to the cleaners, revealing some of its errors and reprimanding it of blame games.
But reacting on the allegation of probing the two former CBN governors, Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, using his twitter handle refuted the claim.
“Where did that report come from? Under our constitution which President Buhari swore to uphold, it is not a crime to offer suggestions.
“The checks I made today indicated that the presidency is unaware of the reported probe of Sarkin Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi 11 and Prof. Soludo,” Garba tweeted.
