Sanusi drags Jonathan to court over suspension

26 February 2014, 12:01

Abuja -  Suspended Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Sanusi Lamido Sanusi has filed a wrongful suspension lawsuit, alleging that he was suspended from office after disclosing that $20 billion was unremitted by the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) into the federation account, reports Leadership

In a suit filed at a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja , Sanusi said that while performing his duties as Governor of CBN, he discovered certain discrepancies in respect of amounts repatriated to the federation account from the proceed of crude oil sales and expressed concerns about the said discrepancies.

He is therefore asking the court to restrain the President alongside the Attorney -General of the Federation (AGF) and the Inspector General of Police (IGP)  from giving effect to his suspension, pending the determination of his lawsuit.

He is also seeking an order of interlocutory injunction restraining the President and other defendants from obstructing, disturbing, stopping or preventing him in any manner, from performing the functions of his office and enjoying in full, the statutory powers and privileges attached to the office of the governor of the CBN.
