Suspension saga: Jonathan is a good man surrounded by incompetent and fraudulent aides – Sanusi

Sanusi Suspended Central Bank Governor, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, yesterday affirmed that President Goodluck Jonathan was a good and simple man who has good intention for the country but polluted by “extremely incompetent and fraudulent” aides.
Sanusi came under the heavy axe of Jonathan on Thursday over what he tagged as financial misconduct and recklessness as the Apex Bank Governor. Sanusi in an interview with the Agency France Press in Lagos, said many of Jonathan’s aides were sycophants, who do not know how a country is supposed to be governed. He said, “When you sit with the President, he appears a nice and simple person who is trying to do his best. “His greatest failing obviously is that he is surrounded by people who are extremely incompetent, who are extremely fraudulent and whom he trusts.” Sanusi also frowned at the seizure of his international passport by security agents, claiming that it “was the beginning of infringement on my fundamental human rights.” The Dan Majen of Kano said when he heard of a report condemning his performance, he wrote to Jonathan in “June or July” asking if an explanation was needed, but received no reply. He argued that it would be too simple to describe his removal as payback for his attacks on the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation. “Since 2009, I have been annoying the government. There are people who think I have the wrong friends; people who think maybe I have not distanced myself enough from people who are seen to be opposition figures.”
“If I am sacrificed in whatever way, my freedom or my life… if it does lead to better accountability, it will be well worth it,” he added.
