Speaking Christine Amanpour on CNN on Wednesday, Emir of Kano, Sanusi II, the former Governor of Central Bank said:
“Yes, General Buhari is right on the level of corruption in the country and we need to address this sufficiently. We have not helped the situation by living in denial (that the situation does not exist). I don’t want to dwell on this because of the time that we are and we are close to an election.”
Emir Sanusi maintained that $20bn was missing from the account of the NNPC, which was not remitted to the federation account. He said,
“This has not been addressed adequately and from the account of the corporation, about $20bn was not remitted to the federation account. We need to address this.” Adding when asked if there will be real change after the election, that the kerosene subsidy billions theft he raised remains a big issue that needs to be addressed. Nigeria’s minister of oil, Diezani Alison Madueke known as the oil goddess is recognized for stealing these nations billions in the kerosene subsidy fraud and other scams.
Emir Sanusi said whichever government wins must deal with the economic drain at the oil sector. Sanusi said the government must focus on people’s welfare; this will reduce crime and corruption.
