Politics CBN Governor to be Forced into Early Retirement

Sahara Reporters is claiming that Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria will be forced to retire two months before his tenure expires. The early retirement is due to Sanusi’s recently leaked letter to President Goodluck Jonathan detailing the theft of close to $50 billion in oil proceeds by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). He later revised the figure to $12 billion.

Anonymous sources are claiming that President Goodluck Jonathan believes that Sanusi has been making erratic pronouncements just to demean the office of the President. The source also claims that the CBN governor agreed to the early retirement following threats from the presidency to investigate his spending habits.

Sanusi's tenure as CBN governor is supposed to expire in May 2014, after which he is expected to pursue his ambition to become the next Emir of Kano.
