I’ve Said it Before, I Don’t Belong to Any Political Party – Sanusi Lamido Tells Tinubu
Former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, has told the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, that he does not belong to any political party.
Sanusi made this remark while speaking at the seventh edition of KadInvest.
“I keep repeating, hope you remember that I lost my job at the central bank for this same problem. It is not about a particular party. I have no party. My party is Nigeria.
“This is the problem we had in 2014. Asiwaju (Tinubu) knows my party is Nigeria,” he said whilst addressing the audience including Tinubu.
The ex-CBN governor lamented oil theft, Nigeria’s rising debt profile, unbalanced subsidy payment and soaring foreign exchange, amongst other monetary and economic challenges facing Nigeria at the moment.
He called for transparency and credibility in the management of the nation’s resources and demanded the unbundling of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited, saying the company is not a cash cow but should be run as an independent enterprise with high-level accountability.
Sanusi further urged states to free themselves of excessive reliance on the Federal Government
