CBN Governor, NPC Chairman may be Sacked

Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, and chairman, National Population Commission (NPC), Mr Festus Odimegwu, may lose their jobs, following a series of allegations levelled against them.

According to Osun Defenders, both Sanusi and Odimegwu are accused of mismanaging the agencies under their control, an allegation which President Goodluck Jonathan was said to have frown on.

An undisclosed Presidential Source said, “I can reveal to you that the matter of the two public officers has come under review and their jobs may be in the line”.

The source also mentioned that the two officers are accused of misrepresenting the government through their “unguarded statements, which were often seen as representing the views and decisions of government.

“For instance, look at the CBN governor; he is usually embroiled in matters outside his official duties. How many times do you see the chairman of the US Federal Reserves Bank engaging in issues outside his official engagement? You can only see him speaking on vital economic issue when it is necessary to do so, which is rarely,” explained the source, adding that the NPC chairman was also guilty of the same offence.

“As for the NPC chairman, his conduct in recent times has been worrisome. You cannot be rubbishing everything your predecessor did. If there is a problem, it is your job to solve it and not create any problem for your agency and government,” the source stated.
