Information available to 247ureports.com through a source close to the activity within the top officers of the House of Representatives indicate the tension between the Central Bank of Nigeria [CBN] Governor, Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi and the members of the House of Representatives may have reached breaking point.
It is gathered the lower chamber of the national assembly [NASS] may have begun private discussions on passing a resolution for the removal of the CBN Governor. This is according to a principal officer within the House of Representatives.
A leader of the lower chamber of the NASS who spoke to our correspondent under the condition of anonymity disclosed that the legislators were “very happy” with the antics of the CBN Governor. “He has continually embarrassed the government of Nigeria”, said the legislator who added that a compilation of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi’s breaches against the tenets of his office has begun. “The grounds of removal are many, he committed too many blunders”.
The latest exchange between the CBN governor and the legislators over the introduction of N5,000 notes may have aggravated the already tense relationship between the two.
Details remain sketchy.
