Sanusi’s Removal: CNPP Blast Jonathan, says “Its Selective Witch-Hunt”

The Conference of Nigerian Political Party, CNPP has accused President
Goodluck Jonathan of witch-hunting over the suspension of Mallam Sanusi
Lamido Sanusi as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN.

CNPP in a press statement signed by Osita Okechukwu, said the suspension
is in bad faith especially coming at a time when Sanusi had accused some
persons in Government of squandering oil revenues.

The statement reads:

“Whereas, the Conference of Nigerian Political Parties {CNPP} cannot fault
the powers of President Goodluck E. 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.

“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.”
