The Governor of Lagos state has spoken his mind concerning the recent suspension of CBN governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi and he is not in support of GEJ's decision.
Fashol who spoke to news men after inspecting projects in Ikorodu, Imota and Agbowa areas of Lagos, Southwest Nigeria on Thursday, added that he did not understand the economic practices the government was putting in place.
If the man is going in June, there must be a sense in the messaging about executive tampering with the independence of Central Bank of Nigeria. This has economic consequence for investor position.
“This isn’t a suspension but sack. This is because there was no power to sack him. And they have considered the implication. That was why they said that he should go on suspension.For me really, if someone in my government tells me that some money is missing and without concluding any investigation, they suspended the person who blew the whistle. It is when the audit is concluded that they can now decide what to do to the man.
“But now, before the completion of the audit, they have sacked the man who alerted the head of the government that money is missing. So what message is the presidency sending out to Nigerians on corruption and others who may want to reveal any atrocity committee in the country?
“The message the presidency is sending out is that Nigerians should keep quiet whenever they see any corruption perpetrated in the country. That is not a good sign for the country,
