Top NSPMC officials panic over imminent sack

25 February 2014, 15:42

Lagos - The suspension of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as the governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has sent shock waves down the spines of some top officials of the Nigerian Security Printing and Minting Company (NSPMC) , where Sanusi was also the board chairman,reports New Telegraph.

The suspension has unsettled some Sanusi loyalists in the company as there are indications that they could be the next target for their roles during Sanusi's tenure.

This latest fear followed developments that the new acting governor may want to favour people of a particular zone above others into positions, just like Sanusi was alleged to have done during his tenure.

The acting Managing Director, Nuhu Bamali, for example, has outlived the mandatory six months in acting capacity. He has been acting since the former MD, Ohi Ekomoyon, was sacked by the board of NSPMC 15 months ago on account of missing currency notes in the Lagos plant.
