APC SAYS SANUSI’S SUSPENSION IS MOVE TO BLOCK INVESTIGATION OF MISSING OIL MONEY

0

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the presidency of seeking to use the suspension of Mallam Lamido Sanusi Lamido as Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to divert attention from the allegation of missing $20 billion oil funds.
In a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday by its Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said the way the presidency had been campaigning to malign Sanusi, using the report of the obscure Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria, showed that it was working hard to sweep the issue of the missing funds under the carpet and punish Sanusi for daring to expose the fraud.
According to the party, if the federal government had used half the energy it had been deploying to discredit Sanusi toward the investigation of the missing oil funds, the monumental corruption case would have been solved by now.
The party said: ”Irrespective of the tepid and unconvincing denial by the presidency, it is clear that the main reason the presidency moved against Sanusi is because he blew the lid on the 20 billion dollars funds which the NNPC allegedly failed to remit to the Federation Account.
”Fortunately, discerning Nigerians are not hoodwinked by the presidency’s choreographed mudslinging against a whistleblower, and the sponsored campaign that amounts to shooting the messenger just because his message is not palatable.
”While the presidency has chosen to pull the wool over the eyes of Nigerians over the missing oil funds, we call on the National Assembly to get to the bottom of Sanusi’s allegation and save Nigerians from a rapacious and a rampaging cabal that is hell bent on bringing Nigeria to its knees through runaway corruption.”
