Emir Sanusi Says Jonathan’s Government Operates In Denial, Insists $20 Billion Missing

Jonathan meets Emir Sanusi

The Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II has said that the government of President Goodluck Jonathan has been living in denial, even as he insisted that $20 Billion was missing, a situation that led him to clash with government at the tail end of his tenure as the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

Emir Sanusi who spoke in an interview with Christine Amanpour on CNN agreed with the Presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) General Muhammadu Buhari that the level of corruption in the country is massive and needed to be addressed sufficiently.

“Yes, General Buhari is right on the level of corruption in the country and we need to address this sufficiently. We have not helped the situation by living in denial (that the situation does not exist). I don’t want to dwell on this because of the time that we are and we are close to an election.”

The Kano emir insisted that about $20bn was missing from the account of the NNPC, which was not remitted to the federation account.

“This has not been addressed adequately and from the account of the corporation, about $20bn was not remitted to the federation account. We need to address this,.”

He called on leaders at all levels in the country to speak against the activities of Boko Haram, stressing that he is not afraid to die as a result of his opposition to the sect.

“I have achieved everything that I could achieve; so, what is there to be afraid of?” he said. [myad]
