He gave away government money in a flagrant manner that would give pause to even billionaire Mike Adenuga. And then when he knew the game was up, he decided to blow the lid on NNPC financial indiscretions, in order to distract attention and attract public support and sympathy. Nigerians should not fall for this “mago-mago.” Lamido Sanusi should not only be sacked, he should be tried and, if convicted, should be jailed.
The last thing a country needs is a CBN governor who talks frivolously. The word of a CBN governor has implications for financial market volatility; therefore he must mark his words. He must speak with confidence
And here is a direct statement from Dr Okonjo-Iweala, the finance minister:
I don't seems to know where this country is going, because how can such amount of money be missing when is not a needle. But all the same this cartoon is funny any way and i think the person falling is Sanusi the former CBN Governor and the people under the rock/road are the looter.

“On the implications for the economy; I’m not an economist but I personally feel that it will definitely send wrong signals to investors. This is because you need to have confidence in the financial institutions, particularly the independence of the financial institutions of a country, before investors will consider such a country worthy of their investments.
Also on Sunday, the Serving Overseer of The Latter Rain Assembly, Lagos, Pastor Tunde Bakare, said that the suspension of Sansusi would have negative implications for the nation.
After the suspension of the former CBN Governor Lamido Sanusi last week, a lot of comments from the people and also some documents have started coming out showing some reason that lead to his suspension and which can also lead to his arrest soon.
Below are some of the documents that proof the fraud committed by the former CBN Governor.......

I have no regrets; I have no ill-feelings and with no sadness. I’m happy; I’m proud of what I have done.”
These were the words of Lamido Sanusi as he reacted to his suspension as the Central Bank of Nigeria governor by President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday.
Although it was learnt that he might challenge his suspension in court, Sanusi reminded the Jonathan administration: “You can suspend an individual but you can’t suspend the truth.”
Sanusi, who added that his suspension did not bother him, said his “biggest concern is for the system .”
He was attending a meeting of the West African Central Bank Governors in Niamey, Niger Republic when the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, announced his suspension.
Abati, in a statement in Abuja, said Jonathan took the decision because Sanusi’s tenure had been characterised by acts of financial recklessness and misconduct.
Abati’s statement reads, “Having taken special notice of reports of the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria and other investigating bodies, which indicate clearly that Mallam Sanusi’s tenure has been characterised by various acts of financial recklessness and misconduct which are inconsistent with the administration’s vision of a central bank propelled by the core values of focused economic management, prudence, transparency and financial discipline;
Not much is known about the Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Zenith Bank Plc, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, who has been nominated by President Goodluck Jonathan to succeed Mr. Lamido Sanusi as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria in June.
Emefiele is an economic and finance professional with experience in banking and academics. His calm demeanour bodes well for the role of an economic manager and bank regulator, according to analysts.
The House of Representatives on Thursday had a rowdy session over the suspension of the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, by President Goodluck Jonathan, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
Debate on the suspension of the CBN governor started when the Minority Whip of the House, Samson Osagie (APC-Edo), raised a point of order on the suspension of Sanusi.

As clock ticks ahead of the 2015 Presidential election, a group under the umbrella of the Nigeria Mandate, 2015 yesterday advised northern political leaders to let go the dream of taking over from Goodluck Jonathan.
