Written by Morenike Adebayo on August 30, 2016
The Presidency has refuted social media reports that the tenures of Emir of Kano, Dr Muhammadu Sanusi and Professor Charles Soludo, as Central Bank Governors, will soon be probed by the Federal Government.
The social media reports, published on Sunday and Monday, alleged 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.
The reports 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.
Malam Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, however, in a tweeted message, said the presidency was not aware that the Emir and Soludo would be probed for offering suggestions to the president.
