Professor Chukwuma Soludo, the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has been removed from office as Governor. While Sanusi Lamido, the Managing Director (MD) of First Bank of Nigeria Plc (FBN) has been appointed to takeover as the new Governor of the CBN.
Proshare NI gathered that the Northern Oligarchy has put pressure on Alhaji Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (FRN) to put somebody from the Northern as the Governor of CBN.
“The North have complained that for the past fifteen (15) years they have been denied the CBN Governor’s position, therefore they have put pressure on Yar’Adua to make replacements” a Source affirmed.
Following this development, Yar’Adua ordered that those heading Federal Government (FG) parastatals that have finished their tenure should go home.
Proshare NI gathered that Prof. Soludo has been given the marching orders to go home as he has finished his five (5) years term.
