Presidency denies alleged reported probe of former CBN governors


The SSA on Media and Publicity, Mall Garba Shehu has denied social media reports that Federal Government is set to probe the tenures of Emir of Kano, Dr Muhammadu Sanusi and Prof. Charles Soludo, as Central Bank Governors.

It could be recalled that some social media report on Sunday and Monday, alleging that the Federal Government had concluded arrangements to probe the tenures of the two former CBN governors over their views on the state of the nation’s economy.

According to the report it was further alleged that Sanusi and Soludo had been put on “the watch list of the government for some alleged anomalies that occurred during their tenures as head of the Nigeria’s apex bank’’.

However, Malam Garba Shehu, the SSA on Media and Publicity to President, on his facebook page, said the presidency was not aware that the Emir and Soludo would be probed for offering suggestions to the president.

“The check I made today indicated that the presidency is unaware of the reported probe of Sarkin Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi 11 and Prof.Soludo

“Where did that report come from? Under our constitution which President Muhammadu Buhari swore to uphold, it is not a crime to offer suggestions,’’ he said.
