Kashamu Wants Sanusi Probed By ICPC, EFCC

Published

on

Chairman of Organisation and Mobilisation Committee of the People’s Democratic Party in South-West geopolitical zone, Prince Buruji Kashamu, yesterday, said that the suspended Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, should be probed by anti‑graft agencies.

In an open letter to President Goodluck Jonathan entitled: “Why Sanusi must be probed” Kashamu accused Sanusi of cowing and blackmailing many bank chiefs into silence while holding sway as the governor of the apex bank.

“I am worried by the attempt by the opposition to make it look as if they own Sanusi more than the government that appointed him, and thereby politicising the whole issue, said Kashamu.

“From the comments of the opposition and some of its leading lights, especially those he favoured with questionable waiver and contracts, it is obvious that while he was appointed by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP‑led Federal Government, Sanusi was therefore acting their script.

“Now that he has been told to step aside for proper investigation into the allegations against him, all hell is let loose as if some people want him to sit in judgment over his own case. Is it not said that he who comes to equity must come with clean hands?

“It is clear that many who had been cowed or blackmailed into silence will find the suspension of the CBN governor re-assuring of their belief that the Nigeria judicial system will deliver justice. However, there are still issues which the courts alone can resolve.

“In summary, the CBN Governor, based on secret reports, declared “selected banks in grave situation,” removed the management and some non‑executive directors of those banks, infused billions of public funds into those banks and proceeded to nationalise some of them and sold the others to mainly inscrutable consortia.

“The Farida Waziri‑led Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, was conscripted with a mandate to arraign some of the officers of the banks before the criminal courts on various allegations of misconduct and harass some of the customers of the banks into making,” Kashamu said.
