Corruption is Too Much under President Jonathan – Emir Sanusi

The immediate past governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and the reigning Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has declared that massive corruption is still being perpetrated by President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration. This was as he stood by his earlier disclosure that $20billion was missing from the account of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC.

Sanusi, who disclosed this while being interviewed by Christine Amanpour on CNN, maintained that the presidential candidate of the APC, Muhammadu Buhari, was right on the level of corruption that is going on in the country at the moment.

According to Emir Sanusi, “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.”

Sanusi stressed that corruption in the country was massive and needed to be addressed sufficiently.

While maintaining that about $20 billion was missing from the account of the NNPC, which was not remitted to the Federation Account, Sanusi said: “This has not been addressed adequately and from the account of the Corporation, about $20 billion was not remitted to the federation account. We need to address this.”

“I have achieved everything that I could achieve. So, what is there to be afraid of?” Sanusi asked.
