Lagos lawyer and Civil Rights activists, Chief Gabriel Giwa-Amu, has condemned the suspension of the CBN Governor Sanusi Lamido Sanusi stressing that the decision by President Goodluck Jonathan was a wrong step ahead of 2015 general elections.
In his words “it is unfortunate that the PDP government has decided to dig its political grave. It is a political hara-kiri.” He added “It is indeed very sad that a man who ought to be commended for his style of leadership and rare helmsmanship at the CBN, is being tossed out like a bad coin in spite of his monumental contributions to the growth of this country and the rare ingenuity displayed by this banking icon at sanitatizing the erstwhile rotten banking institutions in Nigeria.”
Speaking further, Amu noted that it appeared as if those who advise Mr. President are either economically dead to the nitty – gritty of economical knowledge and also politically dead or that they are just being mischievous looking for the down fall of the President.
“This is the official announcement of the death of the PDP as a party” Giwa- Amu submits.
In a related development the Chairman of Obolo Ofor branch of the Nigeria Bar Association in Anambra State, Barrister Gerald Aboyi who also doubles as the Director Centre for Advancement of Democracies, Social Justice and Conflict
Resolution in Nigeria, decried the impromptu decision of President Goodluck Jonathan to do away with the Governor of the Central Bank Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.
In a telephone interview with our correspondent, he submitted that the sudden sack of the CBN helmsman was a calamitous mistake most especially against the backdrop of the gale of revelations by Sanusi of the whereabouts of public funds alleged to have found their ways into privates’ vaults or misappropriated.
